Sort the recycling!
I ordered three cheap recycle bins from amazon.com and labeled them paper, plastic and glass. Recycle bins
I made these file folders by laminating pictures and using Velcro. My students have to place the right picture on the right page, depending on the item.
These recycling visuals can be found Here on the amazing autism helper blog. I get lots of inspiration from that blog, along with The autism tank blog.In the bathroom area, I have set up a grooming station to reinforce daily hygiene and good habits. Here, my students are learning to brush teeth, hair, apply deodorant etc. After each skill is mastered, a grooming schedule is implemented to maintain the skills. Here is an example of a schedule one of my students follow:
Here is the station set up with the materials needed for each skill (face wipes, deodorant, tooth brushing and lotion)
Here is a schedule for applying deodorant found on boardmaker share.
This laminated worksheet is also set up in the bathroom station, and my students have to match each labeled body part to the picture (Velcro!) This worksheet can be found here from the education.com website. So many great resources at this site!
We also have a kitchen station, with a microwave and refrigerator so my students can learn how to use both. The students also set the table and sort utensils.

I found these utensil draw organizers for cheap on amazon.
