Color coding materials for a subject area can be helpful in supporting students in materials management as well as in preparation for instruction.


A teacher may prompt students to bring their red math notebook and folder to the rug.  The teacher can place a Velcro strip above the class white board and place a color card of the subject notebook and folder color needed to increase student success as a support to the verbal instructions, “Bring your red math folder and notebook to the rug.”
