Index Card Work Tasks

This is a weird thing to say: but I am a big fan of index card holders. Yea – still weird. I’m sure that phrase hasn’t been said too often. But I really am. It’s a space efficient way to store a variety of types of tasks that is functional. If your student goes on to work in an office setting – they have index card holders there! I put my index card tasks in my table time work station.

Here are a few ideas of the types of tasks you can use:

Sort letters – field of 4

 Sort Letters – field of 7

Sort colors

Sort shapes

Sort and order numbers

Alphabetize with highlighter prompt

Alphabetize by first letter of last name

Sort by date

Sort coupons by grocery type

Have a great weekend!

  2. Haha – simple joys, right!? Happy shopping 🙂

  3. I am having trouble finding the monthly dividers! Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

  4. I thought I was the only one with an index box obsession! We are setting up a life skills/vocational lab at our high school and I love these ideas for our transitioning students. I love that they are age appropriate and look like real work. Thanks for the ideas!
