Thank you for your interest in the Monsters Apostrophes Task Cards. This set of 36 task cards is a fun and engaging way to enforce that your students are proficient in identifying whether an apostrophe shows possession or is used in a contraction, able to combine two words into a contraction, and able to place a missing apostrophe into a contraction or a word showing possession.
Included in this packet you will find:
- 36 Task Cards ( 12 require students to write a sentence using an apostrophe and 24 ask students to determine if an underlined word is a contraction or a possessive and place the apostrophe in the correct place)
- Answer Sheet
- Answer Key (not provided for the 12 task cards that require students to write a sentence, as the answers given will vary)
- Scoot Game Instructions
My favorite way to implement task cards is to play Scoot. This game gets the students up and moving, which helps to break up the monotony of sitting at the same desk throughout the day. Given the large number of task cards given, you may want to split the task cards up into two sets and either use half of them or play the game over two time periods.
This is also a great resource for homeschool students as well. I like to place the cards all around my home and my daughter will scoot to each one in a similar manner as in a classroom setting.
Of course, that isn't the only way these task cards can be used. They also work well in math centers, as a task for early finishers, and as extra engaging work for your eager learners.
For resources that are not consumable, such as the task cards, I do recommend printing on cardstock and laminating so that you can use them over and over again.
Thank you again for your purchase. I hope you enjoy the Monsters Apostrophes Task Cards as much as I do.
