March Work Tasks for Easter


Okay so I know it is a ways off, but I am super excited to share 8 Easter work tasks as part of Autism Classroom News' Workbasket Wednesday!  All you need is a few sets of these Easter erasers from Dollar Tree and the eraser visuals from my TPT store and you have the first 6 tasks at your fingers tips! 



And what's even better, they are leveled!  Level One- a Simple Put in Task



Level Two- Egg Assembly:  (My favorite!)  All you need is three cans and some plastic Easter eggs. Arrange the cans left to right for students to take an eraser, open an egg, put the eraser inside, close the egg and put in all done.  


Level Three-Sorting Easter Erasers to Picture Images:  All you need is the picture images, magnet dots and a muffin tin.  


***If you have a student or two who are very rigid and have a hard time being flexible 
you can add a few erasers that don't below and then a symbol that says 
'this does't belong' (like in the photo below).  Just a little extra problem solving :)


Level Four- Sorting Easter Erasers to Icons: This task helps generalize vocabulary.  For example the purple egg and the pink egg are still both eggs.  It also helps students work toward recognizing icons have meaning for icon schedules and visual communication supports.  


Level Five- Sorting Easter Erasers from Christmas Erasers: All you need is some Christmas erasers and a microwave dinner tray with two sections (or any container with two parts or two cans or bowls).  

Level Six- Graphing Easter Erasers: All you need is the worksheet printable and a can to put the erasers in after the students graph them.  


***BONUS: Print the colored version of the worksheet, put it in a page protector 
and use it as a math or social small group activity using a dry erase marker and a take one bag.  


For students who are non-verbal or have limited language you can use this aided language board to facilitate communication about the erasers the students pick out.  


And before I sign off for the night, two other Easter fine motor tasks using this box of Easter memory cards also from the Dollar Tree.  

All you need is a box and clothes pins and you have a fine motor and matching tasks all in one!


To make the task a little more challenging for students who need to strength their fine motor control use binder clips.  

Thanks for stopping by on Workbasket Wednesday or in looking at the time, Workbasket Thursday!

Until next time 'spring' into some new Easter work tasks!

  1. I LOVE the idea of using magnets on the back of the pictures in the muffin tin so the tin can always be changed out. Brilliant!
