Place bracelets in bag...students choose one and whoever has the same colored bracelets are partners. Great classroom management for partner work and projects!

Great idea for assigning groups or roles. Use the bracelets for assigning students into teams for class projects. Or if you want random team assignment, put the bracelets in a paper bag and have students close their eyes and pick one.

For kids who are easily distracted or overwhelmed by amount of work. Put assignments/responsibilities onto a paper in a file folder. Cut the file folder into thirds so that the student sees 2-3 tasks at one time. This is helpful for multi-step problems and organizational difficulties as well as difficulties with attention. Essential for students with NVLD or Processing Disorders as well as ADHD!

For kids who get easily overwhelmed by visual input. Cut a file folder into strips. The shorter the attention span, the smaller you will cut the strips. Open 1 flap at a time and always begin at the top and work their way down.
