The following collection of worksheets will help reinforce the idea of reading all of the directions.

How to Encourage Students to Read Directions More Often? Helping your child to understand basic behaviors can be a daunting task; but, a mandatory one. A teacher is someone who not only teach students about a topic; but, to teach them how to listen as well. A major concern is that if students don't learn how to listen, then it will cause problems later on. However, the key is not being strict about it but encourage them to listen and read direction. The first thing you should do is tell them a magic word. Whenever they hear that word, they will have to listen or read after it; such as the word “warning”. You must also make them repeat the instruction they read or listened. In this way, they will remember it strongly and even for a long time. Another way to encourage them is to help them find the purpose of the following direction. For instance, you can bribe them with a gift or tell them that you'll find a treasure by following the rules for the scavenger hunt.

These activity sheets contain a wide variety of questions based on the standard high school curriculum. Subjects include math, science, vocabulary and grammar, art, social studies, logic, and more. A mixture of formats include fill in the blank, short answer based on reading passages, multiple choice, drawing, etc. Each worksheet may contain a single subject or a collection of different subjects presented as a "general review." However, they all have a sneaky surprise at the end! Note for instructors: Some of the instructions have students making noises or moving around the class. If this is against your rules, please choose another.
