How do the Original Task Box Bundle and the monthly set differ?
After creating the original set of task boxes, it was requested that I make more task boxes. I figured the best way to continue the activities, but keep them different was to create a monthly series of task boxes.
- Both bundles contain activities that range between Pre K and 1st grade skill level.
- Activities will differ between the bundles and will not be duplicated or repeated
- Both bundles will contain 2 levels of difficulty for each task box
What are the benefits of task boxes?
- With 2 levels of differentiation, each bundle is guaranteed to reach a wide variety of skill levels
- Students begin to establish independence while reinforcing mastered skills and basic concepts
- The simple streamlined design of the these activities make it easy for teachers, paraprofessionals, and substitute teachers to implement.
- Quality clip art and easy-to-read fonts are engaging without being overstimulating
How do you implement these in the classroom?

Will you be making a higher level set of activities?
Yes, this is on my to do list! So far, a math set has been created.
What to Expect:
- Math, language arts, science, and social studies task boxes focusing on 2nd – 3rd grade level skills
- More age-appropriate clip art and high-quality stock photos with real images
- Differentiated skill levels for each concept
Can I use task boxes in my general education classroom?
Absolutely! I have had many regular education teachers use these as independent activities. They are perfect for early finishers and keeping students occupied during small group lessons.
Where do you purchase the colored boxes?
Do I need the colored photo keepers?
No, the activities were designed to be no larger than 4×6” in size.
Pencil boxes and Ziploc bags make for great storage containers as well.
Do you have data sheets?
Yes! Check out my free data sheets and covers here!
How can I store my task boxes?
I like to store my task boxes in ziploc bags when not in use. This allows me to swap out the contents and reuse the colored task boxes as needed. I store the Ziploc bags in Sterilite containers, using labels that I’ve made on Teachers Pay Teachers.
