The 36 task cards are highly engaging and motivating and align with common core standards. The comprehension strategies are appropriate for 4th grade, 5th grade students, but can also be used with high-functioning 3rd grade students. The task card passages contain both fiction and nonfiction selections. Students use skills such as cause and effect, inferences, compare and contrast, problem solving, drawing conclusions, identifying important facts, using context clues. The activities are great for homework, practice, or centers. QR codes are provided to give immediate feedback. They can be used with any smart device with a free QR code reading app installed.
Instead of using QR codes, students and teachers can use the full answer keys that are also included. Pages in the packet can be printed either in color or grayscale with good results. These activities are effective as a homeschool or summer reading resource and are easily adaptable to existing lesson plans. No-prep is needed.
