About Our Directions - Giving and Asking Worksheets
Let’s talk about directions! This section has 41 worksheets devoted to directions and since other teachers have used them successfully, you can too. This directions worksheet is for students who are learning directions for the first time. First you will have to introduce the names of various places but once your vocabulary introduction and practice has been completed, you can use the worksheet to practice giving directions. Do not forget to test comprehension by giving students directions without telling them the destination and then asking them where they were directed to. Being able to follow directions is just as important as being able to give them. The first time you do this exercise, it is likely that a variety of answers will be sent your way so be prepared for a quick review too. There are lots of other directions worksheets available if you think your students require a different type of practice activity.
Directions can be challenging for ESL students to learn so the most important thing you can do in class is explain words and phrases thoroughly and then allow students to practice, practice, practice. When starting out, have phrases organized clearly on the board so that students can easily compose responses to questions. As students improve, remove this reference from the board and allow them to continuing practicing. Directions is a topic that will take several class periods to cover and one which also requires plenty of review time before exams so make sure your students have a good handle on the material before moving on to another topic.
