ONE NOTE ABOUT THE INFORMATIONAL TEXT TASK CARDS IN THIS BUNDLE:
Informational text is now given over 50% of reading time and focus in class, as required by the Common Core Standards. This is because reading informational text is more difficult for students, and it requires more practice. As adults, it will also be the primary type of reading they will do. This makes informational text reading skills essential. Due to these requirements, the text on these particular task cards is a bit longer than on other task cards in this series. They still fall within the reading level of 2.0 to 2.9, (as determined by Okapi Readability), but will be more difficult for students. It is recommended that teachers start out using 12 task cards at a time to reduce the amount of reading text students must accomplish. More can be added as skills are acquired.
To see all standards addressed in this resource please see the list above to the right of the resource picture.
Task cards can be used in many different ways:
1. Centers and/or stations…since task cards can be done in any
order, they are easy to share.
2. In pairs or small groups
3. Whole class
a. Quick review before going home, or to specials
b. Teacher reads question, students write answers on white
c. Use as an assessment. Task cards don’t feel like a test, so
test phobic students are more relaxed.
5. Independent work at seats
6. Send home for homework as reinforcement for students
