All you have left is to write the items to sort on small pieces of paper! I just cut up another piece of construction paper into small rectangles.  Again, you can write down the item or have the students do it themselves as part of the activity.  More practice the better!

These foldables can easily go into a speech folder or notebook.  They can be sent home for home practice or used over and over again in your speech therapy room.  These are perfect when you are in a pinch and need a quick activity or need to fill time at the end of a session.  You can make some of these ready to go for a moments notice or use them often as students can make it themselves to work on their goals.
