It is time for the monthly linkup at Autism Classroom news for workboxes..... I am just running a few days late. I made a work box for one of my students this week. He has not started it yet, so I am hoping it goes ok!
I will fill you in later this week. My students have been working on sorting by size, but only two sizes: big & little. I want to add to their vocabulary and challenge them a bit. I came up with this work box to sort these bears by size. I have no idea where these bears came from as they were in the room when I moved in. The sorting container came with a train set my son got for his birthday. I saved it just knowing I would use it someday. I made the labels in board maker, laminated them, and just taped them down. I did not make them showing pictures of the Bears so that I could easily change out then manipulative. I wrote the word, small, medium, and large instead of using boardmaker because I wanted it in color and I didn't have a color printer to access. To do the task the student simply sorts by size in the appropriate section of the tray. I honestly do not expect them to stand the Bears up all neatly like I did, but you never know! I can't wait to see how this goes tomorrow!
