For people who use teachersk's match card system - here are some ways to incorporate functional skills that I've been using in my k-5 ASD classroom. Or, if you just get generally excited about looking at other people's classrooms.........: And functional skills. Counting nickels and pennies w/visual cue to change from 5's to 1's. Counting money and matching prices/items to amounts Counting items Easier holiday chart harder holiday words and match month to holiday bus schedule and match bus stop/time of arrival a set of menus for places we will visit on CBI adding prices of foods using a calculator matching prices of foods to the listed menu price adapted recipe match ingredients to amounts adapted job schedule - kids match what day of the week with what job or break is that day match day of week to lunch foods using adapted lunch menu chart After doing these activities during functional skills lessons, the match cards (along with the charts and menus, where appropriate) go in the kids' independent work stations. They are rocking and rolling with them!
