I hope you find this a beneficial tool and/or resource for your classroom and students. I also included the individual slides so when your class has completed the task cards in the way you have chosen, you may review each slide individually has a whole group.
This is a set of 24 individual cards as well as slides which cover the following topics: counting objects, addition, recognizing basic shapes, and finding a missing number in a sequence.
This includes a student recording sheet as well as an answer sheet.
This is a set of task cards which can be used in many ways. Below are a few suggestions and ways in which I use task cards in my room.
1. Individually, task cards can serve as reinforcement for students who need more time achieving the specific skill needed for a topic. They are better alternatives to worksheets in my opinion. While using task cards, students are asked to answer as many or few as they can. I can then use them as a formative assessment to gauge student knowledge.
2. Preparing challenging task cards are also good for students who are very fast in picking up the lessons. They can be set aside for students who have completed their other work and used as an enrichment.
3. Task cards allow students to move around the room which is always a plus in my book. Set high expectations for what the movement looks like.
4. Task cards can also be used in small groups. You can divide your students and present one task card at a time. Have them write their answers on the whiteboard for comparison before discussing the next one.
5. You can also use task cards in game-like activities like “Scoot”. Students will be given different cards to answer for a certain period of time, (depending on the questions or tasks and grade level of the students). Students will then answer it on their own. It can be written in their notebooks, papers, or on the a task cards answer sheet. When the allotted time is up, the teacher will say “Scoot!” All students must move and answer another card that awaits them. (Another version of this is to let the students pass on the task cards to his or her seat mate once the time to answer is up.)
