Task Cards = Fewer Teacher Directions, Independent Practice and Fun Activities
Each card has a simple word or phrase and an illustration to remind children what the activity is on the task card. Independent work time should mean that children practice and utilize basic learning concepts. Teaching children an array of activities that will allow them to work without you is imperative. This will allow you to meet with small groups and individual children. If you have ever wondered "what will the other kids be doing?" these cards will create a classroom full of children who not only know what to do, but want to do it.
Each set of task cards was created to outline how to practice skills in an independent classroom environment. While the letters, words, or books change, the basic skills that we want children to acquire do not. The cards come with directions for introduction of the cards, along with blackline masters if needed. Cut out the cards you want to use, punch a hole in the corner and place a metal ring through the hole to keep them together. Ready-made center ideas with little or no additional work for the teacher.
Buddy Reading Task Cards, Word Task Cards, Writing Task Cards, Letter Task Cards, Vocabulary Task Cards and Newspaper Task Cards are available.
