Gotta love a work task that almost looks like playing. These kinds of activities are awesome for you kids who have tons of escape behaviors and just seem to cringe at the thought of work! Since this “work task” uses toys – you might just trick your kiddo into getting a little work done. Hit up the dollar store and buy a bunch of packages of a few types of toys. You can make it more tricky by getting toys that look pretty similar because your students will really have to discriminate while sorting.
These toy turtles do look very similar! It is a tricky and time consuming task. We have also made tasks with sorting action figures, toy cars, toy trains, and multi colored balls! Quick, cheap, and can be varied in endless ways!
