|My Task Card Corner!!|
Figurative Language Task Cards - These are so helpful because students have a difficult time understanding the different types of figurative language. This also helps to improve their writing!
Main Idea Task Cards These are probably my favorite because I have so many students who struggle with identifying the main idea. It's such great practice!
Genre Task Cards - These are ALWAYS helpful because I ALWAYS have a few students ask me "What genre is this?" This helps them to learn the different genres so they don't need to ask me anymore!
Context Clues Task Cards - These are another one of my favorites because students are ALWAYS struggling with using context clues to help understand unfamiliar words. This is my pride and joy because it really helped my students progress on our district assessments. I was flabbergasted by the progress of my struggling readers!
Alphabetical Order Task Cards - I know I teach 4th grade, but you would be surprised how many students find it difficult to put words in alphabetical order!! This was a great tool last year to help my students become better at this skill.
Reading Task Cards - with a FRIEND or INDEPENDENTLY -These are great because every card gives them a job to do and can be applied to any book! They can either pick a card to do with a friend or do it independently. I like to use these for my fast finishers. I always like to give them meaningful work (or what's the point?) and I feel like extending their thoughts regarding their just right book is perfect!
Accountable Talk Discussion Task Cards -These were a LIFESAVER this year!! With the new CCSS we really need to hold students accountable to participating in discussions, teacher lead and student lead. This really helped my students to learn the language and apply it! As the year progressed we moved away from these cards because my class didn't need them anymore!! Yahoo!!
If you haven't jumped on the task card band wagon yet, you SHOULD!! They are an amazing tool and really helped my students progress last year, I can't wait to introduce them this year as well as show off my new Task Card Corner!
