I created these task cards as a way for my students to practice the 6 traits of writing
“Word Choice” skill. On the CC state assessments the last several years I’ve seen a
lot of questions involving word choice, so I wanted to make sure my students were
prepared for these types of questions.
To use this product, you could print a set of cards per student, per pair, per small
group, or one set for the whole class. I like to do task cards as a “scoot” game. To
do this spread the cards around the classroom in a pattern. Then, have students
begin at the card that is their classroom number. Students can then work around
the room at their own pace, or you could set a timer for 30-60 seconds per card
and call out “scoot!” when it’s time to switch to the next card.
Another variation is to put your students into small groups of approximately 4
students. Print one set of cards per group and cut them apart. Have teammates sit
in a circle and distribute the cards evenly amongst the players. As students answer
a card, they pass it to the next person. Continue until all students have completed
