Product Description

Theme task cards focused on STAAR! Theme, main message, lesson learned in a multiple-choice format aligned to the new TEKS. Use with STAAR passages, reading stations, STAAR review, exit tickets, or small group instruction.

Theme Task Cards (STAAR) are perfect for units on theme (obviously!) but also when teaching summarizing and main ideas. These 12 cards ask theme in five different ways using 8 different short stories (realistic fiction) and 4 informational texts focused on business. All question stems and answer stems are aligned to STAAR (2017 & 2018) for rigorous practice!
