On  September 23, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi Justine! Thank you so much! Over the years, I've noticed that many more students need reinforcement of the basic skills which is why I created them. Not only can they be used as assessments but as you say, they're good for independent work and also for center work. I really appreciate your comment and rating. :) Have a wonderful new school year!

I love the way these cards are organized. It will be very helpful to know which, if any, of these very basic skills need more attention for the kids to be successful this year. Thank you so much!
On  September 23, 2012Ruth S. answered:
Hi Kim! Thank you so much for purchasing my Foundational Skills Task Cards! Your comment is exactly why I created these cards! I needed an assessment that would identify the kids who needed reinforcement of basic skills. Once they're been identified, I work with small groups or with students independently, to reteach the skills. I really appreciate your comment and rating! Have a fantastic year!

Created a center using this resource..thank you
On  September 2, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi again, Rhonda! it's wonderful you created a center for foundational skills! Over the years, I've found there are too many students who don't have the basic skills they need to decode words, to alphabetize, and more. Using them as an assessment tool, I'm better able to work one-to-one in order to teach or reteach the skills. I really appreciate your comment but wonder why you rated it lower. We TpT teachers are always open to suggestions! Best wishes for a wonderful new school year. :)

Are the common core standards posted on the product?

On  January 11, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi. No, there's no listing on the individual cards if that's what you mean. I use these task cards as an assessment to determine who's reached mastery and who needs review.
Thanks for asking!
