We are going to make a review chain. This is so simple and easy to do, but the key is know why this simple trick is so successful!
Strips of Paper
First we need to cut strips of paper. No need to make this fancy, just use whatever you have on hand. It can even be strips of white paper! Don’t let the supplies you have let you get in the way of getting started.
Next we are going to simply make a chain link for each review piece played. From there you can decided how you want to customize it for your child. Write the specific review piece down on each paper or maybe a technique your teacher has been asking you to work on in lessons.
Why Does it Work?
But why is this so successful? What about it makes review easier to accomplish and less of a struggle. The crux of it is having something that is a visual representation of our hard work. It is satisfying to see that every time we do a task. For young children this visual of the hard work can often be more powerful way of creating motivation.
