Assembly Directions If your circle rules differ from what is currently available please feel free to make adaptations. You can double click on the word, located above the picture, to change the text label. Also, a blank template for pictures or photographs has been provided on the last slide. If you would like to personalize pictures or make additional picture prompts, you can paste the pictures into the template and add text using the “text box” on the bottom tool bar. Print the pictures on cardstock (or printer paper glued to manila folder for increased durability), cut them and laminate them. For the large class size picture cues, place a piece of Velcro (rough side) on the back of each picture. Velcro on the back allows the teacher remove a picture to individually cue a child of the rules. For the “key ring” cues (see photograph below), simply punch holes in the corners of the picture cues and attach to the key ring. The key ring can then be worn on the teacher’s wrist for quick access when individually prompting children. Printing directions are on slides 3 and 4. The pictures are attached on a laminated file folder. The folder (or board) should have small strips of Velcro (the soft side) across the front so the pictures can be adhered to the board and yet still be removed for cueing. Key ring sample with mini picture cues Pictures are removable for direct cueing Class Size Picture Cues To view photographs at a larger size, go to “view” on tool bar and then to “zoom”.
