following directions worksheet

Learning to follow directions is an important skill for all students to master. By the time students start Kindergarten, they should be able to handle simple 2 to 3 step instructions; however, some kids may need a little extra practice.

In this Following Directions Worksheet, students will help Owlivia, an animal character from Zoo Academy with a coloring project.  Specifically, Owlivia’s teacher, Miss Castillo has asked Owlivia to color the biggest balloon blue, the smallest balloon yellow, and the medium balloon red.

Materials for each student:

  • A copy of the worksheet
  • 3 markers or crayons: Red, Blue, and Yellow
