Taskbox Time-- Packaging Taskboxes

This week's edition of Taskbox Time is focused on Packaging tasks which can be a great way to work on a variety of skills including one-to-one correspondence, following a sequence of steps, counting out sets, assembly, and vocational tasks.

Many taskboxes can be made simply with common household and office supplies. The Target dollar bins and Dollar Tree also offer affordable materials for easy taskbox assembly. Other organizations provide donations. In the Miami Valley, many teachers volunteer at Crayons for Classrooms or attend the Montgomery County Material Reuse Facility's Teacher Shopping Days.
