Secondary special education teachers, are you constantly searching for materials that target the skill levels your students are at that are appropriate for their age? Then you need the Work Tasks for Secondary Students bundle.
This resource line is perfect for older students that need practice with skills at a lower grade level! Here's a close-up of what's included and some tips to put it to use in your classroom.
Each set comes with 6-10 tasks, and each task comes in 2-4 levels. There are 120 tasks included in the bundle. Visual instructions for each task with real photos are included. The best part is that this set uses real photos and age-appropriate graphics, making it appropriate for kindergarten through high school!
I store these tasks in these photo containers and in pencil pouches. The included labels are color-coded by level, so it's easy to differentiate. I love to use these tasks for independent work, but they are also great for centers and early finishers.

How to use Secondary Work Tasks
After prepping each task, I suggest using a work task system to encourage student independence. In my classroom, each student has a work bin. Thir work bins contain the same tasks for an entire week, so they have multiple opportunities to practice and it makes prep easier for me. At the end of the week, I reset their bins for the next week.
In each bin, I give students 4-5 work tasks that are skills that they have mastered or are close to mastering. Because this is independent work time, I do not want to have them work on skills that they are just learning because this gives them opportunities to practice errors. I assign each student a color level (blue, green, or yellow), and the tasks they complete are at the appropriate level.
