Product Description
These cards have been used with students from Year 7-11 (Grades 6-10), but would also be suitable for challenging capable upper primary / elementary students. Be warned though: critical thinking and effort is required! Included is a script of how to 'think aloud' and model the thought processes of a good reader.

More task cards! My students love when I pull out a set of these. Task cards are a great way to get your students engaged and focused, and their versatility makes them perfect for anything from starters to lessons to plenaries.

If you would prefer a DIGITAL (online) version of these task cards to use with laptops, desktop computers, iPads or other tablets, please find them in my store.

On these cards you will find 32 extracts including original writing (from yours truly), classic literature, and nonfiction. Accompanying each short text is a question that asks students to dig deeper into the text, and pull out details that are not explicitly stated.

These can be used for oral or written response. Setting them up as 'stations' around the room will ensure students are physically moving as they learn.

Once students understand the concept of task cards, they can easily be used for a cover or sub lesson.

You could use 1 card as a starter activity to get students using their inference skills before additional reading challenged. Alternatively, use the set with individuals, pairs or small teams.

Included in the pack:
-sample card for display on projector
-'think aloud' script to model how to approach the cards for students
-32 task cards printed 4 to a page
-full teacher notes
-a tracking sheet
-a sheet for students to record their answers
