Here's what teachers have had to say about this product:

  • Love these cards for small group work! Thanks!
  • Such an important resource to have for higher level thinking!
  • Have really enjoyed using this to develop higher order thinking with my second grade students. Thank you!
  • Made these on construction paper and laminated them. Great to use for references at my reading table.
  • Great for small group! Thank you for creating this time saving resource!
  • The kids love the new ideas, I love their creative responses!
  • Great cards to get students really thinking!
  • Very challenging!
  • This is fabulous! It has saved me A LOT of time. Thank you!

Teacher Tip:  Just print, laminate on card stock (colors work too!), and place into bins or baggies at student desks (or in your reading center). Students can (and should) also refer back to the task cards when responding to literature for homework or test prep purposes.  The more students use the task cards, the more of a chance they will start to respond to literature on their own!  For differentiation, assign students a specific task card to work off of based on what you notice students do when responding to literature.
