I did not like how the student task cards were put together in the 2nd edition of EL. I went and redid them all so each day was on a separate sheet. One sheet includes the learning target, materials, and task for just that day. I also did them so that I could save paper. Instead of printing out everything for every student, I put each task card in a bin with a plastic sleeve. They share the task card when they are at each station. When they need to record things they either do this on a sheet of lined paper or in their reading journals.
