The clipart in this activity is SO cute- I got so many comments from teachers when I was cutting out my cards in the teacher break room at my school =D My students also loved the fun robot art. They all pretended to be robots for the first couple minutes of the session! It was hilarious!
The first set of cards are two step directions with the use of the word "before". Here is an example. There are 15 cards per page-3 fun cards and 12 direction cards.
Then there is another page of 2 step directions using the word "after" as seen below:
Next is another 12 cards that target first-then combination as shown here:
Then another 12 cards that target directions using the phrase "at the same time" as seen here:
Then we get to my favorite part of the activity- the conditional following directions. This is the area that my students have the most difficulty with so I was glad to see a bunch of target cards in these areas.
Danielle, of Sublime Speech, made conditional direction cards using the same wording as above- "at the same time" "Before" "After" and "First/Then" Here are example cards of all of those areas. There are 12 of each target. Basically there is a page dedicated to each of the therapy task areas.
Then there are blank cards that you can create your own cards.
Overall I really liked this activity! This is the area that I am focused on this 9 weeks- so this activity was a great addition to my speech arsenal when trying to help my students under the concept of following directions. I really liked how there were so many target cards in each of the areas. I liked how the cards were easy to read and the language suited my elementary kids. If any of you guys have a student with a goal for following directions- than this would be a great activity for you to purchase.
It is available in Danielle's TPT store for $4.00 here

Catch a freebie from me: Raising Your Hand Tokens I use this freebie with many of my therapy activities. I give each student 3 cards. Each time they talk/answer a question they give me one of their cards. When the student runs out of cards, they have to wait until all of the other students run out of their turn cards. This allows for my quieter students to have opportunities to participate in therapy tasks just as much as my "outspoken" kids =D
