These task cards can be used in many different ways to accommodate teacher and/or student preferences:
1. Small Groups:
Students are placed into small groups and given a handful of cards to discuss orally.
Students are each given one task card at a time, they record their answer, then switch with a buddy for a new card.
3. Literacy Center:
Materials are placed in a literacy center for extra practice during reader's workshop.
4. Read Aloud:
Teacher reads aloud task cards one at a time as students record their answers on their recording sheets.
Students are each given a card. They roam around the room, find a buddy, quiz each other orally, then trade cards, find a new buddy, and repeat. I recommend that students explain their reasoning to their buddy during this protocol.
6. Mat Sort:
Students lay out the 3 author’s purpose mats, then sort each task card by placing it under the correct mat.
7. Challenge Cards:
Students select a challenge card and compete the task in a notebook or on a sheet of writing paper.
