- Deck 1- basic, earlier-developing categories: Food, Animals, Clothing, Colors, Numbers, Letters, Tools, Body Parts, Musical Instruments, Toys, Sports, Furniture, and Rooms in a House
- Deck 2- differentiates basic categories into subcategories: Fruits, Vegetables, Seasons, Kitchen Utensils, Containers, Fasteners, Farm Animals, Forest Animals, Pets, Appliances, Relatives/Family, Vehicles, and Rooms in a School
- Deck 3- challenging categories that interest older students: Meats, Desserts, Things to Read, Buildings, Occupations, Jobs/Chores, School Tools/Equipment, Girls' Names, Boys' Names, Beverages, States, Jewelry, and Computer Equipment
Students match cards from the same category in four stimulating games like Steal the Pile and Stack 'Em Up. Each game comes with suggestions for expanding categorization skills and reinforcing goals in verbal expression. A student progress tracking sheet is included.
