Getting a job is a dream that many students hope to achieve one day. Although it can seem very exciting, many students will admit that they are quite nervous to start this next chapter of their lives. Help ease some of these nerves by getting students used to the vocabulary that they will likely encounter in the work force.

Vocabulary acquisition supports clear communication. Students with disabilities often have trouble with understanding what is being asked of them or easing into new transitions. Starting a job is no easy feat, but by knowing key terminology, you can help to ensure your students' success outside of the classroom!

This packet provides students with a hands on and visual way to prove their understanding of key job themed vocabulary words. Provided in a puzzle formats, students can match together their answers. I have included TWO LEVELS to further differentiate for varying student needs in the classroom. Level A is for lower level learners who struggle with reading. It focuses on visuals to help students match the picture to its correct word. Level B is designed for higher level learners who can read on their own. This level encourages students to match definitions to their correct term.

Terminology Reviewed:



Pay Stub

Job Application

Work Schedule


Medical Insurance

Cash Register



Credit Card / Debit Card


Social Security Card










Business Card


Fast Food Industry


How I Use This In My Classroom:

I print both levels of these puzzles out and laminate them. Once they are cut out, I place them in ziplock bags and label them with the correct level. I then either have students work on the levels independently in centers or in small groups with a staff members. For lower level students, we modify and have the definitions read to them on level B. It is great for their confidence to see them move up to higher content, and further promotes sight word recall as well!
