Age Appropriate Matching File Folder Activities {free}

For students who are working on basic skills such as simple matching, it can be extremely difficult to find matching tasks that do look like you just grabbed it from the preschool classroom. I have walked into one too many a classroom and found a 15 year old matching pastel colored bears. One of my biggest pet peeves in life! I get that it can be difficult to find age appropriate materials – especial for our lower level or more cognitive delayed learners. But that’s where we have to get creative!

I made these simple matching file folders for a client during the summer and I just loved how they turned out! They are cool & fun but still target basic matching allowing even lower level learners the chance to work independently on a task at their level.

  9. I absolutely love this idea! I teach middle and high school students with special needs mostly males and am always looking for age appropriate materials for my classroom especially with a lower reading level. It is difficult to find!

  11. Hi! I’m about to start my second year as a special ed teacher. I feel a lot more confident going in this year (last year I was a mess. First year is tough!) However, I found out that my former class was closing and now I will be teaching a K-2 autism class for the first time. Your website has been my obsession and salvation! I want to thank you for all of your resources. I’m curious about your file folders… How do you set them up? Do you just use regular manila folders and glue the tasks onto the folder then laminate them? I already starting to set up a task box system, but was curious about the folders. Thanks!

  12. Hi Jennifer! Thank you for reading my website; I am so glad it is helpful! For the file folders – I paste everything onto a regular manila folder and then laminate! All of my file folder sets some with instructions for setup as well! 🙂 Good luck in your new position!
