Use these text dependent task cards after reading The Butterfly, by Patricia Polacco. This book is a perfect read aloud after reading Lois Lowry's Number the Stars, as students can make many connections, and can easily compare and contrast both books.
- 16 Task Cards
- Student Recording Sheet
- Answer Key
Task cards are a great alternative to worksheets! They can be used in a variety of ways. Students can use them individually, in pairs, small groups, or as a whole group activity. After a read aloud, they work great as a Center Activity, or as an assessment. Another option is to simply print out the cards and Student Recording Sheet in grayscale, and provide them to students as a "packet" to be worked on as a "When You're Finished" project.
Simply print out the cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock before laminating, to make them extra sturdy. Store them either in a basket or plastic baggie, or hole punch each card and store on a binder ring for easy access.
These task cards can be used as traditional task cards or can be uploaded to either Schoology or Google Slides. It’s an easy way to incorporate technology into your language arts block. Have students access the task cards through either Schoology or Google slides, print out the recording sheets, and have them handy for whenever or however you choose to use them. No prep necessary, answer key included.
