"Put in" task boxes

I have quite a few students who need level 1 task boxes this year. My go-to for many of these kiddos are "put-in" tasks because it allows them to do the tasks with as little prompting as necessary.

Check out the "put in" tasks our classroom is full of now!

Poker chips!

Foam blocks

Ping pong balls


Clothes pins (can be placed inside the basket or clipped on the basket)

Wood beads

Variety of balls, blocks, and chips

Wood blocks


I've been struggling to come up with ideas of other manipulatives to use for put tasks. I've seen a lot of people use holiday/ themed items, but I'm not sure about the idea of only using the task boxes for a few weeks out of the school year. What are your favorite objects to use?

  1. I love these! Love how you've cut the holes in the box lids. I do like the idea of seasonal objects. You could use the same boxes, just switch out the objects to put in.

  2. I study plenty of stuff and i discovered that the way of writing to clearifing that exactly need to mention was excellent so i am impressed and ilike to come again in future.. Gmod game

Different types of bloggers are able to avail varying benefits from each of these platforms, but if you are a beginner, then the right the Blogger platform is the right blogging platform for you.
