Product Description
This 20-task card resource was created to give 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students practice with the concept of reading and writing number words COMBINED with learning interesting facts about the five (5) branches of the United States Armed Forces (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy); the U.S. flag; the Red, White, and Blue Awareness Ribbon; the Remembrance Poppy; Veterans Day; and Memorial Day.

How it works: Task cards are read for the purpose of identifying, reading, and recording years as number words. For example, 1947, the year that the United States Air Force became a military service, would be recorded and written as “nineteen forty-seven.” For the first set of task cards (#1-12), students must look at the year (underlined) and record it as NUMBER WORDS. For the second set of task cards (#13-20), students read the underlined number words and record them as DIGITS. Lesson extension printables are then completed for more practice with the concept of reading and writing number words.

Gentle Suggestions/Tips/Reminders:
*This resource includes both task cards in color AND black/white.
*You may wish to laminate all task cards to ensure years of durability and use.
*The concept extension printables were created with the intention of being completed in conjunction with the task cards. However, depending on the needs and academic levels of your kiddos, you may wish to have the students complete these printables outside of the task card activities.
*Images of military personnel and images related to patriotism found on the concept extension printables may be colored using crayons and color pencils. SUGGESTION: have the students use MULTICULTURAL OR SKIN-TONE colored pencils and crayons to do this.
*For your convenience, answer keys for all task card activities and concept extension printables are included with this resource.

2nd Grade Teachers:

*Most of the activity printables contain specific vocabulary words and phrases that may be too difficult for some of your 2nd grade kiddos to read and decode. I’ve included 31 flashcards and 2 graphic organizers to help with blending, decoding, and vocabulary practice. Please feel free to use these materials in any way that will suit the needs and academic levels of your kiddos.

Tip #1: model good reading by reading the informational blurbs about each branch of the armed forces out loud. After a few readings, you may wish to have your students practice reading this text independently or with a reading buddy. :)

Tips #2 and #3: have your 2nd grade kiddos read the first 12 task cards in order to successfully complete the “When Was It Established?” activity. You may also want to keep a list of number words handy for their immediate access and availability.

Can't Hide That Military Pride! :)
