These 4 file folders will make excellent summertime tools resources centers in younger elementary classrooms as well as for work systems and instruction in special education classrooms. They are great for structured or independent work systems for students with autism and related disabilities as well. They focus on basic matching skills for colors, numbers and counting. This set is designed to assure that what the student is learning is the skill targeted. For instance, all the numbers are on the same color stars so that the student doesn’t learn to match the colors instead of the number.
In this set you will find materials to create the following:
1 file folder matching 12 colors
1 file folder matching numbers to numerals (1-20) (this could be split into 2)
1 file folder matching numbers to sets (1-20) (this could be split into 2)
1 file folder matching numbers to number words (1-20) (this could be split into 2)
These file folders can be used to teach the following Common Core Standards
CCSS Math Content K.CC.A.3 Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written number 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
CCSS Math Content K.CC.B.4: Understand the relationships between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
