Did you know that categorizing can help your students with summarizing? Students who learn to successfully categorize concepts are able to transfer this knowledge to categorize key details of a text, which will help them to find the "gist" or main idea.
This product is complete with 24 task cards that will expose your students to new vocabulary and get them thinking about how concepts fit into categories. Students will explore words that fit into categories including pets, emotions, directions, transportation, and so much more! This product also has an "I can" statement and informational sheets describing how to use these task cards for an independent practice activity AND how to use these task cards for a partner practice activity. A recording sheet and an answer key are also included for a quick assessment of student understanding. 24 blank numbered cards are included to laminate, so students can record their answers with a dry erase marker if you choose.
