Independent Task Boards can be a game-changer. You know that student. The one that won’t get anything done without you. A new teacher at our school has this on lock. This teacher came in against tremendous odds: she was taking over a class mid-year, oh, and did I mention this class was our self-contained class for students with autism?
Lisa C is amazing! She knows these students and tries to give them what they need. She is also eager to ask for help, if she needs it. She created task boards for her students. Using these task boards, she helps her students make great choices and be successful.
1-step Independent Task Boards
Students who need these tasks get to choose their reward. The boards are designed by the student. The work board in the picture was chosen by a student who loved that animated character.
He would talk about how this character helped him finish his work. He also liked putting a check mark on the character. The rewards are laminated with velcro dots on the back.
Choices could be building with blocks, listening to music, or drawing whatever they want. There are even blank cards to create their own reward.
3-Step Independent Task Boards
She used a student created task board and 3 small post-it notes. The tasks are simple, name, paste, basket.
He knew exactly what he needed to do without lots of discussion or direction.
He also had everything he needed available to him: the glue and extra pieces in a small container.
