The 'Take Off Tasks: Synonyms' download is 3 pages of words with a space for the synonym of each word.
As you all know, 30-minute sessions go by extremely fast! It is really hard to fit in all the teaching and practice in that short amount of time. In an effort to get an extra few minutes of practice, I created Take-Off Tasks last year.
As each student walks out the door at the end of the session, they have the option to take a task out of the basket. The tasks change through out the year. The students then can discuss the tasks (quietly!) with their group members on the walk back to their classrooms.
All you have to do is cut out the words, fold them up, and put them in a basket by the door!
