Description

Connotations Task Cards is a set of thirty task cards that provide students with a variety of practice exercises for the difficult concept of word connotations. Students practice recognizing the different nuances of word meanings and choosing words with just the right connotation.

NOTE: For a digital version with one task card per slide, and ready for students use with text boxes, etc for their answers on Google slides, see Connotations Task Cards Digital Resource. This PDF version is also included with the digital resource.

The activities in this set of cards include:

Connotation or Denotation?

Positive and Negative Connotations

Illustrate the Connotations

List in Order

Choose the Best Definition or Word

What Did They Really Mean?

List Words

See the preview for more sample cards.

These task cards are designed specifically for middle grade kids. The cards are large – two cards per page and have more content per card than many of the smaller task cards – perfect for older kids who can handle more than one quick question per card.

Included with this set is a blank answer sheet for students to fill in their answers.

Each card provides a short assignment that is a great length for centers, partner work, independent work, or class games like Footloose and Scoot. Print the cards on card stock, or print them on plain paper and have them laminated to use over and over. Included in this set is a list of suggestions for ways to use task cards and a list of suggestions for easy differentiation with task cards.

Providing practice in the use of words with different connotations is a great way to help students develop their reading comprehension and written composition skills as well as their vocabulary, and the variety of cards makes it easy to differentiate for students of different abilities or students who work at different rates.

These task cards support both the standards for Reading: Literature and for Language.
