Restocking Bags

By Charlotte Cushman on Nov 12, 2014

There are many different jobs that can be done in most stores and it's important to begin by doing an inventory of the possible tasks in a given work environment.  This job can be as simple or as complex as appropriate and focuses on fine motor skills, matching (paper, plastic), seriation (arranging in size order), counting, and more.


  • Supply of bags
  • Rack on which to arrange bags


  • Discuss orientation of the bags (front, back, top, bottom)
  • Review appropriate number of bags to have on the rack, so that the student knows when they should be restocked
  • Ask students to check which racks need to be restocked or set a given number that should be the amount to be restocked (e.g. add 25 bags to each rack)
