Inside the folder:
Keep the picture cards which show options for the day inside the folder. Allow child to choose the "treat" at the end of the required activities.
attach fuzzy velcro to the top and bottom of the left side, and rough velcro to the top and bottom of the right side (this will keep the folder shut)
make a pocket for finished cards on the left inside page by attaching an index card with packing tape
store unused picture cards on this page using strips of velcro or in a ziploc bag attached with velcro
Select the activities that are going to happen, and place them in top to bottom order. Be sure to end with, or include, activities recognized as "treats". Place the current activity in the "NOW" box. When that activity is finished, place it through the slit in the "FINISHED" area, to be stored inside the folder. Put the new current activity in the "NOW" box.
rough velcro goes on stable surfaces, and fuzzy velcro goes on moving surfaces
