Occupations Sorting Mats!

What is it

  • Sorting items into the different occupation mats

Teaching Objectives

  • Learning to identify the types of pictures/items associated to each occupation

  • Learning to read the sight words

  • Matching pictures of the sight words

  • Sorting the pictures into each occupation without the help of the sight words

How to use

  • Print out all the mats and pictures

  • Cut along the dotted lines for the pictures

  • You can choose to laminate the mats and pictures to make the cutouts more durable!

  • Practice labelling the pictures one at a time before matching the box. Move on to sorting out a mixture of items and occupations to challenge your child!

Teaching tips

  • Generalize to other 3D objects

  • Bring your child into the community so that he can experience the different labels learnt through this activity! (e.g. Writing a letter and dropping it off at the post office)
