Description

See the preview for more sample cards.

These task cards are designed specifically for middle school and upper elementary kids. The cards are large – two cards per page and have more content per card than many of the smaller task cards – perfect for older kids who can handle more than one quick question per card.

Included with this set is a blank answer sheet for students to fill in their answers.

Each card provides a short assignment that is a great length for centers, partner work, independent work, or class games like Footloose and Scoot, and the variety of cards makes it easy to differentiate for students of different abilities or students who work at different rates. Also included in this set is a list of suggestions for ways to use task cards and a list of suggestions for easy differentiation with task cards.

Providing practice in the use of text structures is a great way to help students develop their reading comprehension skills, and these task cards support a number of the standards for Reading: Literature and Reading: Informational Text.

The Easel Activity is a digital version that is ready to use with one card per slide. It is ready for student use with answer boxes and directions already in place.
