Thank you for your interest in my reading task cards. These work great for literacy centers. It could be part of teaching specific comprehension skills. It could be part of review for end of year.
I wanted to share a reading activity I do with my 2nd – 5th grade students. I am planning to make this into a larger product eventually but it is a nice activity that I would love for you to be able to use already so I am posting a simple version for FREE.
I have several language levels as well as different grade levels in my small groups so there are two versions for each card. I play it as a group with me at times and in partner groups by themselves at times. I determine which set of cards to use depending on the partners or the small group I have.
Everyone can play the same game but at times with different cards.
1. Pages 1 – 6 are non –fiction task cards, Pages 7 – 11 are
fiction task cards. You could use different color paper to print
2. Cut the page straight down in between the two cards to get
your two sets.
Suggestions for using:
Use a dice in a small group with the same book. Lay the cards face up. As you break in reading, if the dice lands on odds, teacher chooses the card, if the dice lands on evens, student chooses the card for the group. The kids love the anticipation to see if I get to choose or they get to choose.
With a partner, read independently and when the teacher gives a signal, rings the bell etc. Take turns pick an upside down card or choose a face up card as you prefer.
Pick out select cards and give students the task ahead of reading independently or in pairs/group with either the same book or their choice book. This is really great for practicing specific skills.
