Poetry Prose Drama Task Cards: 20 challenging cards with various types of text
Recognizing various types of texts can be difficult for students to grasp. These 20 task cards share short texts that are written as poetry, prose, or drama.
There are several ways these cards can be used. One option is to present them one at a time during whole group or small group instruction and promote discussion of the type of text. They can also be used during literacy centers, where students independently record their answers on their answer sheet or work with a partner to complete each card. No matter how you choose to use them, your students will have the opportunity to practice determining the type of text 20 times.
I recommend printing the cards on card stock and then laminating them. That way you can use them year after year! You could keep them in a baggie or hole punch one corner and place onto a ring so that no cards will be lost.
