Laundry Life Skill File Folders

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I love file folders! Here's yet another one of my file folder obsessions...all about clothes and doing laundry! I love using file folders because they are so easy to store and a great way to practice life skills when you are at a desk. Plus, my students always think they are playing games with file folders too.
Laundry Life Skill File Folders Activities for Special Education

I have my students sorting clothes in a variety of ways. 

Students practice sorting clothing by color. A great life skill to prepare to work in a clothing store!
First, I have students sort clothing by color. This is a great skill that transfers to jobs in many thrift stores, where they may organize clothing by color.

I have students sort between colors and whites. As we all know, this is an essential skill for doing laundry!

Another way students sort clothing is by putting the clean clothes in the dresser and the dirty clothes in the laundry basket.

Another great skill for sorting clothing is sorting by size. (Sorry I don't have a picture of this one, but it includes tags sizes XS, S, M, L, and XL for students to separate).

Students can also separate clothing by warm or cold weather. There is also another file folder to sort people that are dressed for warm or cold weather as well.

Finally, a couple basic sorting activities include shirt/pants and hats/shoes and people dress for the weather.

  1. Our laundry was a disaster and if answering three questions were going to help us we would have been thanking anyone for any advice. So I decided that it would be a goal of mine to be on top of the laundry so whoever showed up whenever they showed up at our house laundry would not be an obstacle on the way to the kitchen. laundromat Toronto
