You asked, and we listened! Because of the success customers had with our 3rd & 4th grade STAAR Wars Task Cards, we had multiple 5th grade teachers contact us, asking us to create 5th grade sets, too. So, we’re happy to finally introduce the first set of our new STAAR Wars 5th Grade Reading Task Cards!!
