You will want to check the end of this post for a special promotion in my TPT Store….
Thanks for your patience with my delay of Workbasket Wednesday. As always the link-up will be open all month and next month we will return to the regularly scheduled time of the first Wednesday of every month. If you want to link up, just follow the directions below by the link-up, put a link in your post back to this post and use the graphic below.
I have just a few tasks I want to share with you today and have tried to include those interested for older students. But I just had to share this one….it’s an extension of last month’s post. Remember I told you I had difficulty finding something to put in my containers. Later that same week I struck it rich at Target’s Dollar Spot. They had Frozen, Princesses and Avengers erasers and containers. I couldn’t find Avengers containers, but they also had some great clear divided boxes that you will see in another task. And yes, they were each $1. Check yours out. You’re welcome. 🙂
In this task the student has to find the bottom of the container, match it to the top by color, find the eraser and match to the graphic on the top (Frozen or Disney Princesses). She puts the eraser in the container and puts the top on. It’s a complicated task that you could reduce in complexity by eliminating some of the steps. I now I shared lots of these but this one was just too cute to share.
While I was at Target, I discovered Dry Erase tape. Yes, dry erase TAPE! And chalkboard tape. So I had to use it to make a task….I mean you would, right? Of course. OK…even better I think it was about $3. I would link to it on Amazon but it’s too expensive there–try Target. So, I took the dry erase tape, and that picture with the white in it says, $1.25. The students then had to find the correct amount of money and put it in the right box. Then these boxes came with clear tops, so they will all stay in place in the finished basket.
I fell in love with these little mini-erasers at the Party City store when I was shopping for last month’s Workbasket Wednesday–yes, I shop for this–usually accidentally. Can you imagine how much fun I am to take the to the store? Yes, well…back to my adorable erasers. Forty cents apiece. There were others, like hamburgers, but I decided to keep my life simple and just bought some desserts and some fruit. I then took a worksheet from my All About Healthy Foods Interactive Materials. There are 2 of these worksheets included in a Food Sorting Free Worksheets in my TPT store–you can download them HERE. I cut it apart to use the labels that I taped to the back of the bins. I just love it when I find a new way for students to practice the same skills.
Now, for a special treat, my friends at #weteachsped special ed. bloggers have gotten together and are offering one of our items in each of our TPT stores for $1. Go to my store HERE and in the search bar type #SPEDDollarDeals to find out which item is on sale for $1. But this sale will only last today….Wednesday, July 8 until midnight eastern. Be sure not to miss it!
