Product Description
Review and grow your students' understanding of literature standards with this appealing set of 36 language task cards. This resource addresses 8 of the 10 common core second grade literature standards (see below). All reading selections are within the 2.0 to 2.9 reading level as determined by Okapi Readability. Engaging pictures on each task card in this set keep learners attention to the task at hand.

A literature game board is also included to make the task cards more fun at a center, and for a partner activity.


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.
4. Games
5. Independent work at seats
6. Send home for homework as reinforcement for students
needing remediation


This set includes:
