Recall what happened in a lesson

The materials you had in the lesson.

Picture prompts for the activities that were carried out.

Piece of card to stick the prompts onto as you do the activities in the lesson.

  1. As you do the lesson, each time you do an activity, get the prompt card for the activity and put it on the card - so that the activities appear there in the same order that you did them;
  2. At the end of the lesson get the students to say what activities they did;
  3. Ask them which came first, then which was next, and which was next again (etc.);
  4. Use the prompt cards if students are having difficulty recalling the sequence.

You can work on recall of the main activities in the lesson, for example:

  1. Listening to the teacher/tutor;
  2. Draw a picture;
  3. Play the picture game;
  4. Sit in the circle.

Strategies you could use if the student is finding this difficult:

At the end of one activity say we were "listening", next we will draw a picture. Show a prompt card for each - so the student can see the progression from one activity to another. Ask them about these two activities at the end of the second one.
