Simulated Envelopes to Label
Here is an excellent activity for daily living / vocational training. Thanks to Barbara Smith of the Recycling Occupational Therapist for this clever idea.
Its easy to make simulated envelopes using cardboard or plastic. I prefer using cardboard with its natural color that is similar to the color of some envelopes.
Placing the wider length piece of Velcro simulates placing stickers and placing the smaller piece on the top right hand corner simulates attaching a stamp.
If you need to simplify start off by using an “envelope” with only one of the velcro shapes attached (either the label or stamp shapes).
Provide several of these to give students lots of practice on a skill that may be useful in a pre-vocational setting.
