These digital task cards come in handy for students to learn to distinguish between multiple meaning words in context. The task cards actually also form a cute story about a baseball playing bat too! To cover the second grade CCSS standard, students read the sentence that contains some context clues to determine the meaning of the homonym (multiple meaning word). Additionally, these multiple meaning word task cards are no prep and ready to use! If using in Google™ Classroom, you can use them completely paperless!
If you do not have Google Classroom, there are also alternative sets of the task cards to run as a presentation and use with a no prep recording sheet. This option makes these accessible for anyone who has access to Google Drive and Google Slides, which are free! This option is not completely paperless, but it cuts out laminating and cutting!
Did I also mention it can be used on tablets, iPads, and other mobile devices? Say what? Yup, you can use this on a tablet, computer, or you can even project them with a SMARTboard! In fact, this actual set, you could just use a projector on a normal white board, so no interactive whiteboard needed! Simply let the students use a dry erase marker on the board if you don't have access to an interactive whiteboard. Of course, that is just one of the options. These can be used simply with just a computer or tablet because they are very versatile!
Not only that, but this resource stands out from simple apps on tablets because it automatically saves their work when you use the option for Google Classroom use. That means you have access to assess their work!
Use for whole instruction, as center activities, for intervention or extra practice, in small groups, or in small groups.

***There are some technical requirements to use this resource. At minimum you will need a free Google email account and access to Google Drive and Google Slides on any device you plan to use this resource. Please note, if using Google Drive, I recommend using the digital task cards that are formatted for running as a presentation and with use of a no prep printable recording sheet. For students to save their work with use of the drag and drop and typing features, you will need Google Classroom. If using the drag and drop and typing features on an interactive whiteboard for class presentations, Google Drive will be sufficient. For more technical details, please see the preview. ***
***For Interactive Whiteboard/ Smartboard use: To use any dragging/dropping features, your interactive whiteboard will need the feature that performs mouse functions with touch in programs outside of the brand software of the interactive whiteboard. Basically, the touch feature takes the place of how you would use a mouse in other applications such as PowerPoint, surfing the internet, etc. Generally, this feature is there and it should do this. However, in some older interactive whiteboards, this feature may be limited to the brand software of the interactive whiteboard. If you can recall using touch features in other applications such as the internet, than you should be good to go.***
