Autumn Numbers File Folders: Matching Tasks for Early Childhood and Special Education

Type: digital

Focusing on basic matching skills for colors, shapes, numbers and counting, these 8 common-core aligned file folders will make excellent autumn resources for centers in younger elementary or preschool classrooms. They are also perfect for independent work systems in autism and special education classrooms. 

This set is designed to assure that what the student is learning is the skill targeted. For instance, all the numbers are on the same color items so that the student doesn’t learn to match the colors instead of the number. The set features common elements of fall including leaves and pumpkins but avoids Halloween-specific items for schools that cannot use them.
