Why you'll love this resource:

  • The task cards give your students concentrated practice with character traits, so students get multiple opportunities to identify character traits in a short time frame.

  • The task cards come in both print and digital formats.

  • Task cards seem less overwhelming than longer passages for many students.

  • The character trait task cards help students develop vocabulary with a variety of character traits.

  • Students view task cards as more of a game, which makes them fun!

  • It's easy to turn the cards into an actual game by adding a tic-tac-toe on a whiteboard or a board game like Chutes and Ladders, Sorry, or Jenga.

  • The task cards may be used in a number of ways from literacy centers, exit slips, homework, whole class games, test prep, SCOOT, and more!!!

Also, I do want to suggest a great set of reading games that would go well with this reading unit. There is a game for EACH READING STANDARD!!! It comes in a set of 10 for fiction, a set of 10 for nonfiction, or a bundle of 20 reading games specifically for 3rd grades or for 4th and 5th grades!
