There are a total of 24 fiction task cards. Each card has a different short fictional excerpt on it. The cards include excerpts from Aesop's Fables, The Monkey's Paw, Folktales and many other short stories. Each of the cards has a STAAR-like question. The questions are designed to look like questions students may see on the STAAR test. The questions that are asked have been created using STAAR stems and modeled from the released STAAR passages. The questions asked are multiple choice.
This product is designed to be used in middle school classrooms.
There are so many uses for this product. You can use them as a bell ringer or as an exit ticket. You can use them in literacy stations, gallery walks, or even work for early finishers. Every time I use them in a different way. These cards are so versatile.
