These 8 common-core aligned file folders will make excellent autumn resources for centers in younger elementary 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, shapes, 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 items so that the student doesn’t learn to match the colors instead of the number. The set features common elements of fall including leaves and pumpkins but avoids Halloween-specific items for schools that cannot use them.
This product is available as part of a larger bundle including a kit for setting up structured work systems for children with autism and special needs. If you are in need of schedule visuals and materials for the work system itself, please check out: Structured Work System Starter Bundle Autism Basic Skills Kit and Tasks
If you already have a structured work system setup, you can purchase the bundle of tasks in the Autism Basic Skills Matching Tasks Bundle by clicking this link.
In this set you will find materials to create the following:
1 file folder matching numbers to numerals (1-12)
1 file folder matching numbers to numerals (1-20)
1 file folder matching numbers to sets (1-10)
1 file folder matching numbers to sets (1-20)
1 file folder putting numbers in sequence (1-20)
1 file folder matching 12 colors
1 file folder matching 6 basic shapes
1 file folder matching numbers to number words (1-20) (this could be split into 2)
Each file folder has pages with the pieces that have directions about which file folder they match, labels for the front of the file folder and labels for the file tab.
These file folders can be used to teach the following Common Core Standards
CCSS Math Content K.CC.A2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1)
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.
