Simple and easy go-to group activity that can be used regularly. Simple, easy-to-understand jobs listed on each card to guide students in productive small group discussions. Each card assigns an individual job to a group member. For ESL students especially, lots of language/wording can seem overwhelming, and these task cards call for students to interact with familiar language.
Print these cards once in color, attach to index cards, laminate, and use throughout the school year. Teachers can even attach leaving lines side on card back and have students use dry-erase markers to write answers. Great for peer review and diving deeper into readings in groups of 4 or smaller.
The sizing is set up for index cards (3''x5''). To print multiple cards on a page, set the printer in landscape mode and print 4 pages per sheet.
