I found with my ADD students,(Attention Deficit Disorder, similar to ADHD, I
assume?) a blank piece of paper brings many conflicting emotions. For
example, when we did those Symme-TREEs around Christmas, one little boy just
didn't know how to begin to sign his name inside his card...and I found that
just putting a LINE on the page helps immensely. A "Here, you can write your
name on this line," kind of comment. After that, I find myself going over to
him and very specifically showing him certain things during work time. For
example, when doing some landscape lessons, I need to go to him and trace a
line across the page and say "just put your horizon line anywhere you want,
maybe from here to there..." and he seems to be able to get started a little
better.
