Students can use these 20 task cards to review word analysis strategies and word reference materials (aligned with Reading SOL 3.3, 3.4, and 3.7). The task cards are modeled after the end-of-year SOL Reading test. Students can use these task cards independently, with a partner, or in a small group. They will record their answers on an answer sheet and check their work using an answer key (both are provided). This is a great activity for centers, early finishers, review, and morning work.
