These 20 Show Me, Don’t Tell Me! Task Cards are great to use for a game of Scoot, homework, centers, warm-ups, enrichment, examples in writing journals/notes, whole group on an interactive whiteboard/projector, or just for a fun learning activity! Copy your cards, laminate them, cut them out, and keep them for years to come! Then, just print a copy of the student answer sheet for each child in your class and your students are all set to go! I use these cards in my class to help my own students understand what it means to “show” the reader rather than “tell” them. Every year it seems students need a refresher on adding sensory details to their writing, so I always start my narrative writing unit with this practice. I have included some sample ideas, if you need to give your students a better understanding of the sensory details you are hoping for in their narrative writing.
