Why you'll love this resource:

  • The task cards give your students concentrated practice with inference, so students get multiple opportunities to make inferences in one time frame.

  • The task cards come in a digital version that makes it easy to plan and assign for the classroom, homeschool, or for distance learning.

  • Task cards seem less overwhelming than longer passages for many students.

  • There are two sets of task cards, one with pictures and the other using words to give your students practice in a variety of ways.

  • Students view task cards as more of a game, which makes them fun!

  • It's easy to turn the cards into an actual game by adding a tic-tac-toe on a whiteboard or a board game.

  • The task cards may be used in a number of ways, from reading centers to whole class, one on one, test prep, SCOOT, exit slip, and more!!!

These task card sets are also included in my Inferences Using Literature Unit which has lots of passages, interactive activities, graphic organizers, and more!
