You Oughta Know About Task Cards!

Do you use task cards in your classroom? Are you curious how to make the most of these awesome learning tools? Great! I'd like to share some of my favorite ways to use Task Cards to meet the needs of my students.

First, when you have a skill that everyone in the class could use some work or review on, try out these whole group ideas.

  Next, if you just have a few students that could use reinforcement or review, try these small group ideas.
  Or if you are looking for productive and targeted practice for individual students take a look at these individual practice ideas.
  And here are just a few more thoughts on how you can make the most of the task cards you have in your classroom.
 If you'd like to try these ideas out but don't have any task card sets. Check out the cute and fun task cards I created for Halloween to practice both math and ELA skills!
Practice counting sets to 20 in Halloween Candy Count.
Practice counting sets of money in Monster Money.
Practice counting base ten blocks to 100 in Place Value Potion.
Practice identifying beginning sounds in Batty Beginnings.
Practice identifying the number of syllables in words in Syllable Spiders.
Practice reading CVC words in Wicked Words.

I'm linking up with some great teachers again this month to bring you teaching ideas that you oughta know about. Check out what they have to share here!
