I have 8 never-seen-before-on-this-blog work boxes to share with you today! (I know you're super excited, right?)
I found these baby socks in a garage sale free box and grabbed them knowing I'd be able to use them for something (FYI - NOT a baby!). I love the real life matching/ laundry skill application. Plus since they are little baby socks I can fit more in a single box!
I had one student who really loved doing this "medicine" box! This box works on one to one correspondence as well as color matching. I have a gazillion of beads like this in my classroom so I find quite a few ways to work them into tasks :)
Speaking of things I have a lot of, foam shapes!!! Seriously I have been giving like 5 tubs of the things, so I went through and grabbed some big, medium, and small circles for this task. Oh, and those are yogurt containers I separate them into.
Silverware sorting task. Trays came from the dollar store (in a pack of 4) as well as the silverware.
For the Easter egg task, students match the colors for the top and the bottom of each egg and also adds an eraser in the egg. The egg carton made this task do-able for one of my students who could only use one arm, he positioned the bottom in the carton and was able to snap on the top that way. I also have a student whose job is to crack open the eggs and take out the erasers.
Packaging task using office supplies. I taped an "order form" to each sandwich bag. Download the order forms here. The preview on google docs looks weird, but download it in word and everything should look right.
Measuring cups and spoons - putting them in order and placing on the ring.
Counting by 10s with math manipulatives. Each bag has a number that the student needs to fill using the math rods.
