Daily living routines, like sorting and doing the laundry, are perfect for building language skills. Target specific qualitative concepts needed for understanding how to sort laundry in language intervention with your students in speech therapy. Help students predict what will happen in different laundry scenarios.

Language is easily built through these routine tasks, where the vocabulary, sequence, and descriptions are consistent and repetitive.

This resource can help provide additional decontextualized practice in identifying what to do, what not to do, and predicting what could happen. Help teach students why they should or shouldn't wash certain clothes together, or in hot or cold water.

Buyers say:

  • I used this activity for my independent center and also as morning work. It’s easy to prep and all my students can engage by themselves. Excellent resource

  • Great sorting resource because it goes beyond color sorting.

  • Great resource for my life skills students!
