There are 20 task cards for each lesson and skill. I have included two options for differentiation: a 10 question answer sheet and a 20 question answer sheet. The first ten task cards are slightly easier and have less to read than task cards 11-20.
I have also included answer keys so the kids can check their own answers. These task cards can be used in centers during Daily Five or used whole group if you have a few minutes to fill before moving on to the next subject.
The task cards are color coded, so you can create your own blend of all three skills in a 20 task card blend. I have included a generic answer sheet for your convenience.
This file also contains 25 days of independent work for second graders to practice the grammar, vocabulary, and phonics skills for each lesson in unit one of the Journeys reading curriculum. These sheets are great to use as bellwork or as an independent activity while you are working with your tier two intervention groups.
There are five double sided sheets (one per school day) for each of the five lessons in unit one. The sheets are numbered in the lower right corner to match the lesson number. The sheets are formatted the same all week so they will need minimal instruction.
Answer keys are also included if you would like to have kids check their own answers.
