It’s time for another Workbasket Wednesday. We are in the home stretch of the year with testing and IEP season and all the other things going on, work systems become even more essential to our classrooms. Our students have mastered a number of new skills and now they need to maintain them. You also need a variety of tasks that students can practice their skills independently to keep them engaged and to counter the difficulty of testing.
So this month I chose some self-contained tasks that focus on sorting. I like them because they are all one piece–the pieces to sort and what they are sorting into are all one piece. They are made out of cardboard shoeboxes, baby food containers, and baby wipes boxes. The first one sorts pictures of people by boy or girl. The second one uses playing cards as an easy material because they are already durable. In that one the students sort by numbers.
