I have a very social class this year which makes it difficult to host reading groups.
If I have students working in centers while I am with a group then they start
chatting, work doesn’t get completed, and they end up disrupting my reading group.
So I decided to try out task cards and created a station in the classroom for students to visit when they finish their independent assignments. This is how it works: Each student has been given a spiral notebook for gluing and solving task cards. I glued the task card notebook cover to the front and stapled a copy of the rubric inside the front cover. Then I assembled a collection of task cards, mostly from free resources on TpT. I made multiple copies of the task cards, cut them out, and placed them in the pockets of photo albums I purchased at the dollar store. Now students visit the Task Card Center on their own, choose a card, glue it into their notebook, and solve! Once a week I go through and grade their notebooks using the attached rubric.
