Using a "First - Then" visual sequence

One of my student's biggest challenge is engaging in a task for extended periods of time.
The purpose of a First - Then board is to provide an expectation on the work task as well as the reward for completing the set work task. The reward should be a preferred activity (my students choose from our choosing board).


In my classroom, the First- Then board is presented at the start of the activity. The student will choose an activity to work towards and put it on the board. We use the language, "first reading- then ipad."
Once completing the activity they can then move onto their chosen task for a set amount of time.
My students can cope with the amount of visuals i have displayed in my classroom but other students may find as many choices overwhelming; something to remember when setting up a choosing board.
