I love this! Our class is really working on transitions. We do great until we have to move! Going to lunch, specials, even to the rug! *sigh* Hopefully something like this will help! We can use it for academic goals too!

Objective Board - I absolutely love the idea of this board. It leaves no questions or doubts. The student writes out what they are trying to accomplish, the significance of the accomplishment, and how they know they have succeeded. This gives them motivation and reason for why they are doing what they're doing! Now, where do I have the room for this?
