This activity uses simple clip art drawings of familiar foods, animals and school tools to encourage students to develop their vocabulary and to practice sorting pictures into categories.
The following picture cards are included:

* Animals: frog, turtle, bear, rabbit, cat, dog, cow, penguin, owl, chicken
* School Tool Cards: pencil, glue, tape, scissors, magnet, marker, tablet, magnifying class, backpack, paint brush and palette.
Data sheets are provided to track students’ expressive/receptive identification of pictures.
A rubric is included when cards are used for sorting into categories for a work sample. Take photos for additional documentation.
This activity can be used with Preschool and Kindergarten students and those with special learning needs (Students with Autism, English Language Learners, and Speech/Language Students).
