New Product :: Attention & Focus Trading Cards

If there’s one thing I know about my students it’s that they LOVE trading cards – sports cards, cards from their favorite television show, any kind of cards. AND they’ve memorized virtually every statistic possible about their given characters or sports star. However, they don’t love learning every detail about focusing or staying on-task quite as much, until I showed them these!

Focus Trading Cards

Focus Trading Cards

These cards are designed to look like their other favorite cards, but highlight various strategies for improving focus, work completion, and organization. They’re great for students who have been diagnosed with ADHD or other attention difficulties. Each card also features an interactive activity or technique to help students be successful.

These cards are great for activities (ideas below), or can be displayed as posters or held together on a ring for students to keep with them as a reminder.

Cards are presented in full-page (8.5″ x 11″) and trading card (2.5″ x 3.5″) size!

Focus Trading Cards

Activity Suggestions:
– “Go Fish” or “Matching,”: Print 2 or 4 sets and play as usual.
– “War”: Print 3-4 sets. Play as usual – the card with the highest star difficulty wins.
– “Spoons”: Print 4 sets. Play as usual.
– Have students draw 3 cards. Role play one of the 3 choices.
– Charades: Students draw a strategy to act out while others guess.

Review :: Julia Cook Books

One of my favorite authors for social-emotional learning is Julia Cook. She has a book for almost every single type of behavior or situation I encounter as a school social worker and they’re great for on-the-go lesson planning when I’m scrambling to make time to plan. Best of all, my students love the books and actually pay attention while we’re reading and talking about them. What’s not to love? Here are a few of my favorites:
