Receptive Language: Following Temporal Directions

I was giving the CELF-4 yesterday and realized that although I like the Concepts & Following Directions subtest, there are not a lot of written materials out there that address some of the types of basic concepts on this subtest.  Obviously you can do before/after directions with real life objects (jump up and down before you spin around), but I made this worksheet to work on before/after directions with pictures, which is what the CELF-4 is really testing.

  2. Thank you so much! I just test a 5th grader last week with the CELF-4 that had no idea how to do the before/after directions. I felt so bad for him. Think of how many times students are told "Before you go to recess do ___" or "After you turn in your spelling test start your grammar"...

    1. Yes, and it doesn't help that if the word "before" comes at the beginning of the sentence, it means the opposite of when it appears in the middle of the sentence! Like "Before you do A, do B" versus "Do A before you do B." Such a hard concept to master!!!

  6. Thanks for sharing! I have used the Processing Program which taps some of these same types of tasks but this is a great worksheet that I can send home for homework or even give to teachers for RTI! Thanks again :)

  7. Super Duper also has "HearBuilder" for following directions. It is online. There are several levels of difficulty. You can try it for free. My students really like it.

    Thanks for the worksheets!

  9. There is also an app for the iPad that is called "easy concepts" that addresses sizes, sequencing, and before and after.
