Teacher Tip

Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ "These were so fun to use as we played a game of "Scoot" where the kids rotate around the room to answer the task cards. I used it with my fifth graders. The reading level was appropriate and it worked perfectly for a fun, different assessment." -Alissa C.

✏️ "These task cards were perfect for small groups. The students were very engaged and this resource led to deep conversations around text structure." -Danielle T.

✏️ "I used these cards as a mini lesson for a month to start of reading instead of spending a whole week of reading time on it. Worked wonderfully!" -Rachael B.
