I love it! All the little short informational paragraphs are awesome!
These were a great addition to the centers I have in my fifth grade classroom. The passages and questions allow my students to work independently or with partners to help prove their thoughts and opinions.
These are extremely well thought out and interesting for my kiddos. Great job!
Awesome product! Highly recommended! I plan to use them for end of year test prep since they cover all standards.
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
