I absolutely love task cards, and so do my students! There are so many ways to use them when practicing context clues. One of the best skills we can teach our students is how to figure out unfamiliar words.
Wondering about different ways to use task cards? Hang them around the room and let pairs complete them together. Tape them on the walls outside your room and let them go on a little scavenger hunt in pairs. Play SCOOT where you cut them apart and put them on the desks and allow the students to rotate through the cards. Of course, you need to have some great music playing softly in the background for the perfect ambiance and learning environment! 😂
No matter how you implement these cards into your lessons, the students will love you for it. End class with a discussion about the words. New vocabulary is learned, and children are engaged. That’s a winner in my book! 📕
I’ve made these cards as a TpT EASEL activity where they can be assigned and completed online/digitally as well. In addition, there is a student response sheet and answer key.
I hope your students will enjoy this product as much as my students and I do.
