Functional Sight Word Task Cards Update and Holiday Freebies

Reading Task Card Update and Links to Holiday Freebies from Autism Classroom Resources

One of my earliest products were my functional sight word task cards and they are part of many of my larger bundles in my store.  I looked at them the other day and they seemed a little worn.  And of course once I got started, of course it became a total redo of the whole set.  And then it got complicated because these little packs were part of several bundles and my recreation turned them from 3 individual products to 2.  So I wanted to share what the revision means for all of you (and then I can focus on the original purpose of my post which was a freebie roundup for holiday activities to keep you going through these last weeks before vacation).

Read the Signs Functional Sight Word Task Cards

Many of you may have purchased my Read the Signs Functional Reading Task Cards….if you downloaded it by itself, go download the update from My Purchases.  The signs are updated with some additional signs (handicapped access, information, trash, No Dogs Allowed, Hiking Trail, and Wet Floor.  I removed Railroad Crossing, phone, and hot/cold because they didn’t seem as relevant as the ones I added.  This also added 10 cards to the set; there are now 70 task cards in the set and if you have purchased it (or received it as a freebie through my milestone last year), you get it for free.

Functional Reading Task Cards Food Words Including Menu and Grocery Words from Autism Classroom NewsFood Words Functional Sight Word Task Cards

Then, I combined the food reading task cards so that there is 1 product with all food words (menus/restaurants and grocery words) and all of the cards have real photos of the food items.  There are 120 (equal to the 2 packs of 60 each), but there a wider variety of words and again, the words are brought a bit more up to date.  This is posted as a new product; it just made more sense to combine all the words rather than separating them.  Consequently it can’t be downloaded as an update by itself.  For anyone who bought just the Take Away Words and Grocery Words, check out the bundle option below.  You still have the old cards available but the old products are inactive.   I’m excited about the new pack because they look so much more enticing.  Click the picture to the left or below to check them out.

Functional Reading Task Cards Series Bundle from Autism Classroom NewsFunctional Reading Task Cards Bundle

If you had previously purchased the bundle of the three products (take away words, grocery words, and signs), you can now download the updated bundle for free.  It has the new Read the Signs and the new Food Words cards so it has 10 more cards than it previously had and the food words are all pictures.  And since it wasn’t active during the sale when I was working on it, I am putting it on sale for 20% off through Sunday at midnight Eastern.  Then it goes up to its new price.

Holiday Freebies!!

Those of you who followed the blog last year may remember the countdown to vacation where I gave away a freebie a day for the last 8 days of school.  Those freebies are still available so I wanted to make sure you knew about them and where to find them if you didn’t catch them the first time.
