The Lost Boy is the sequel to the book A Child Called “IT”. The memoir chronicles what happened to David after he was removed from his mother’s house.

Are you tired of using handouts? Are you looking for a good way to differentiate? Have you tried using task cards? Task Cards are a great teaching tool that can be used in a variety of ways.

You can:
1) Put all the cards on a ring and give each student (or group) a set of cards.
2) Leave the cards loose and give different students (or groups) different cards depending upon their level.
3) Give students a choice (Pick 20 out of the 24 cards to complete by the end of the memoir.)

There are 24 cards all together in this task card set and an additional 4 blank cards for you to write in any prompts you'd like to add to the set.

The cards are divided into different sections of the book. You can have students respond to every card, have them pick a certain amount of cards or assign the cards to students depending upon their level.

The cards can be used for:
Do Now Activities/Bell Ringers
Discussion Starters
Entrance/Exit Tickets

I would print out the task cards on card stock and laminate them so you can use them every time you teach the memoir.

Please download the preview and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
