How to use these task cards

First, you have to print the number you need, laminated and cut them.

In class, you can use them

  • as bell ringers: simply hand one or two students a card and give them 5 minutes to prepare their speech. They will then speak in front of the class from 10-15 seconds for young learners up to a minute or 2 for advanced students.
  • for fast finishers, at the end of a test or an activity. This will be a writing activity.

No problem: an editable powerpoint with the templates for each level is included in this resource. I also indicated the fonts I use for you to be able to match the existing task cards.
