Errorless learning activities provides students with a safe opportunity to get the answer right and still be exposed to new material. There is not one person that likes to be wrong. Some students will become frustrated or discouraged when they get an answer wrong. Using Errorless Learning helps them feel successful and motivated to give it a shot and to continue to learn.
In this blog post, I would like to share with you 5 of my favorite ways to use errorless learning in the classroom.
Any of the errorless activities that you end up choosing to do in your classroom will be great to increase independence and house in your independent work stations.
1. Errorless Adapted Books:
Errorless adapted books are a great way to introduce early learning literacy skills to students who need the proprioceptive input, the hands-on learning, and the engaging learning that adapted books over.
Each of the Errorless Adapted books that I have includes 8 images on the right-hand side. There is no correct answer so the student has no choice in getting an incorrect response. Students will love hearing the praise of their teachers.
Using Errorless Task Boxes is my favorite way to practice this method of teaching. The students think they are playing a game. They are brightly colored and engaging. These are very portable and I can even send them home to practice with. Errorless task boxes are another great addition to your independent work systems! Students find them easy to manage and store as well.
I get asked this all of the time, so I will put it here. I store all of my task boxes in a photo storage bin from a craft store. Here is the link this one here from Amazon (affiliate link).
3. Errorless File Folder Games
Errorless File Folder Games are a great space-saving option! They are easily stored in a filing cabinet and do not take up a lot of room. Students still seem to think they are playing a game with these. They are able to do these ones a little bit quicker than the rest, but could be a great starting point for a child who is just beginning with Errorless learning!
4. Errorless Worksheets
Errorless Learning Worksheets have been my newest love!! They are the only errorless activity that I don’t need to prep. If I am in a hurry, all I have to do is print and go. I can put these in morning work folders, I use them in independent work centers or even use them for one on one instruction! They also practice following directions, fine motor skills using glue and scissors! I ended up binding mine to use all year long and then send home at the end of the year.
5. Errorless Boom Cards™
Errorless Boom Cards are yet another way to practice errorless learning using different media. Technology has certainly taken over our lives and consumed the kids. Anytime we can offer interactive media, they are all over it. I don’t currently have Errorless Boom cards but I am working on it. I am hoping to have some in my store next month! (December 2021). Unless a student is very independent with logging into the Boom learning website, this would not be a great pick to put in an independent center. However, I would use this in the computer center rotation or even during morning meetings on the smart board. There are so many different applications for this.
Make sure you are in our Facebook Group for special education teachers. It’s a great place to ask questions, gain insights, and learn. I also give so many freebie away in my Facebook group.
