PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Task cards are a great way to teach concepts through differentiated learning and are a wonderful addition to any literacy center! This package of 24 task cards uses short excerpts from 8 quality children's books. The passages were chosen for their beauty, humor, and unique use of similes. The passages vary in difficulty, making them perfect for differentiation. Activities include identification of the simile within the passage, understanding the author's meaning, recognizing whether the simile has a positive or negative connotation, and writing prompts for students to write similes of their own. The cards are numbered and colored coded by the book referenced for quick identification and organization.

The following books are used in this package:
The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling
Behind the Attic Wall by Sylvia Cassedy
Ramona and Her Mother by Beverly Cleary
How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell
