With these 16 task cards, your students will practice answering SBAC-inspired questions about writing. Each card features a short paragraph and question. These cards target the sub-standards for opinion writing:
- introducing an opinion
- supporting the opinion with reasons
- connecting reasons with transitions
- concluding an opinion
These cards are NOT writing prompts. They are selected response questions with multiple correct answers, just like 3rd-5th graders will see on SBAC. Most students struggle with the writing questions because they're not used to answering multiple choice questions about writing. Solve that problem with task cards!
Included in this packet:
- 16 task cards
- recording sheet
- answer key
These cards are ideal for 3rd-4th graders, and could be used with struggling 5th graders or high-flying 2nd graders.
