The Work Boxes Activity Book contains functional, classroom-tested activities designed for secondary students with developmental disabilities. The overall purpose of this educational program is to help students master the skills and self-confidence they need for successful transition into the community.
The 103-page Work Boxes activity binder provides an effective means of teaching the following pre-vocational skills:
-Attention to detail
-Familiarity with common objects
-Care of materials
The three-ring binder is filled with reproducible activities that cover 20 timed, "real-world" tasks. Each task has three levels of difficulty. Assignments include sorting, counting, packaging, measuring, bundling, matching, alphabetizing, copying, filing, wrapping, and assembling. Reproducible activity sheets provide directions for completing each task, with a space for the date, worker's name, starting time, ending time, and total time worked.
The activity binder contains a list of Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) objectives, from which teachers can select appropriate objectives for each student and each activity.
A literature review and reference list is included at the back of the book. This information, which relates Work Boxes to literature in the field, may be useful to teachers who wish to learn more about the concepts included in the work box activities. Progress charts and student checklists are included.
