These file folders are perfect for life skills classes. They use a combination of photos and clip art for common everyday items.  

The set includes matching picture to picture for community signs, fruits, vegetables, fast food items, meat, sweets/desserts, furniture and clothes. It also includes word-to-picture matching for signs, fruits and vegetables.

The items can be divided up as one folder for each set of vocabulary (10 matching pages/file folders). You could also use them to teach students how to sort by having different items on each side (e.g., fruits and vegetables; clothes and furniture; fruit and vegetables picture match to words). There are labels for 14 file folders combinations.

Students can match picture to picture for each category. For signs, fruits and vegetables they can match words to them as well. The activities are designed for the students to use them in independent work to generalize and reinforce skills taught with explicit instruction.
