This countdown visual is an example of how a visual can show the learner exactly how many items or tasks needs to be completed. Countdown visual supports can be used for any multi-step task.
How to use
- Print in full color on card stock. laminate and use velcro to help the numbers stay down when tasks are completed.
- Start with all five numbers showing. You can modify this if you only have a couple of tasks that need to be completed.
- Have the learners pre-determine what they want to work for.
- As pages of the homework are complete, have the learner put numbers down to count down.
- Eventually all of the numbers will be put down and the learner can earn their pre-determined reward.
