The Easy-Prep ELA board with 200 task cards was developed for review and remediation in a 4th and 5th grade resource classroom, but can be used for review and remediation in any upper elementary setting. It can also be used for review or acceleration in lower elementary classrooms. Task cards can be regrouped or used individually. Included are 200 task cards (10 sets of 20 cards each) of increasing difficulty with 30 blank cards (3 per set), a student answer sheet, teacher answer key, and ten engaging anchor charts for student reference.
The following skills are addressed:
Set 1 - Nouns
Set 2 - Verbs
Set 3 - Apostrophes: Possessives and Plural Possessives
Set 4 - Apostrophes: Contractions
Set 5 - Adjectives and Adverbs
Sets 6 and 7 -Homophones/Articles and Frequently Confused Words -
Set 8 - Complete Sentences
Set 9 - Quotation Marks and Capitalization
Set 10 - Order of Events
Copy all ten sets of cards on card stock and cut along the lines. Laminate for durability. Place cards in order 1 -20, and arrange the sets in order 1-10. Display ELA Board in area of high-visibility, and explain directions. Provide students with copies of the Student Answer Sheet, copied front to back. Students are to complete the tasks on each card. You can switch cards each week or whenever all students have completed the board (On Week 1, students complete Card #1 from each set, on Week 2, they complete Card #2...). Some sets often take more than one week to complete, depending on student effort/ability and the reality of classroom demands. The duration of this activity is listed as one semester, but it can last up to a full year , especially if specific cards are pulled for end of the year review.
Anchor charts can be displayed in conjunction with the ELA Board, placed in page protectors and put into a binder for student reference, enlarged for posters, or minimized for interactive notebooks. Anchor charts can also be purchased separately, see links below!
