Videos: Anticipation Calendar

Anticipation Calendar Example

Here you will see a teacher working with a student who is at the anticipation level. Her concept of time is limited to what’s happening now. The activity starts by highlighting the symbol in the now basketwhich represents the specific activity. It will finish with the same symbol being placed in the finished basket.  

Notice the difference in the baskets – one represents “now” and the other represents “finished”. They are purposefully very different in appearance and texture.
