Product Description
Use these text dependent task cards after reading Thunder Cake, by Patricia Polacco. It’s a great First Day of School read aloud, or for a stormy day, or perfect to leave as part of your sub plans.

Simply print out the cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock before laminating, to make them extra sturdy. Store them either in a basket, file folder, or plastic baggie, or hole punch each card and store on a binder ring for easy access.

Task cards are a great alternative to worksheets! They can be used in a variety of ways. Students can use them individually, in pairs, small groups, or as a whole group activity. After a read aloud, they work great as a Center Activity, or as an assessment. Don’t forget that task cards just “cry out” for a game of SCOOT!

These task cards can be used as traditional task cards or can be uploaded to either Schoology or Google Slides. It’s an easy way to incorporate technology into your language arts block. Have students access the task cards through either Schoology or Google slides, print out the recording sheets, and have them handy for whenever or however you choose to use them. No prep necessary, answer key included.

Another option is to simply print out the cards and Student Recording Sheet in grayscale, and provide them to students as a "packet" to be worked on as a "When You're Finished" project. After the morning read aloud, students can work on the task cards throughout the day, and then come together to discuss and correct their work.

If you’re feeling especially energetic, you might want to bake your very own Thunder Cake! (Recipe Card included).

Included are:

• 16 Task Cards
• Student Recording Sheet
• Answer Key
• Thunder Cake Recipe Card

Cards address the following skills:

• Literal comprehension
• Inferential comprehension
• Point-of -View
• Literary Devices

Multiple grade levels are listed, and can be used depending on student abilities.
