Categories speech therapy activities packet- sort by category, category naming, and categorizing activities!

This categories packet utilizes movement- based activities (such as exercises and yoga poses) to engage your students while they practice category skills such as:

identifying the category an item belongs to

category sorting

which one doesn't belong?

category naming

similarities and differences

Each category skill targeted is paired with an exercise or yoga stretch (for example, a student may be asked, “Tell me what category it’s in” before completing 10 jumping jacks). Engage your special education, preschool, or speech and language therapy students- get them moving with this fun-filled packet!

Categories targeted in this speech and language therapy movement learning packet include but are not limited to:

clothing, zoo animals, farm animals, forest animals, food (vegetables, fruit, protein, grains), furniture, sports equipment, school supplies, gardening tools, shapes

This categories packet is no prep. I recommend printing all of the sheets and laminating them so you can use a dry erase marker to cross out, check off, circle, or trace lines to answer choices once completed.

Included categorizing worksheets (25 total)

Workout 1: 5 total worksheets that target labeling what category a picture belongs to (after providing the category for a given item, the student will perform the target exercise, stretch, or movement activity)

Workout 2: 5 total worksheets that target category sorting (the student is instructed to choose which category a picture belongs to, given a field of 2 possible answer choices, such as choosing between fruit or vegetable, then completing the exercise/ stretch/ movement activity that corresponds to that answer choice. You may find using a dry erase marker with this worksheet helpful)

Workouts A-E (3 workouts per letter): 15 total worksheets that target pointing to items in a given category, identifying the item that doesn’t belong, stating the category for the picture, naming items in categories, explaining how things are alike, explaining how things are different - after each question, student completes a target stretch or exercise

Disclaimer: This is not meant to be an exercise program. Please ensure that the student you are working with is able to participate in physical activity exercises and stretches prior to completing any worksheets. With any form of exercise, there is a risk of injury. Consulting with a medical professional is recommended if you are unsure if your student is able to complete any suggested tasks. All tasks suggested are voluntary.These worksheets are for educational purposes only.
