This set of task cards includes 2 packets of color coded cards which are common core aligned for first through third grades. They are differentiated and can be used with small groups, as mini-lessons, quick assessments, for early finishers, reteaching, or any other way your imagination leads you. The first set has one sentence with a word underlined. The student's task is to find a synonym from a list of 4 words that is a more accurate word to replace the underlined one. Set 2 has one or two sentences including a pair of synonyms. It is the student's job to locate the synonyms and record them. Answer cards are included. Though the cards are color coded, each has set 1 or set 2 labels and can, therefore be printed in grey scale with no problem.
