Task Cards are individual cards that offer students opportunities to engage with a particular topic in various forms. Each typically has a prompt or activity that students complete either individually or in pairs or small groups. There are usually different challenge levels as well. Task cards are particularly useful because they provide lots of opportunities for hands-on activities and movement in the classroom. They also lend themselves very easily to differentiation.
- 1 Subject Pronoun, 4 Infinitives, student writes verb forms (cards 1-6)
- 1 Infinitive, 4 Subject Pronouns, student writes verb forms (cards 7-12)
- 4 Verb Forms, student writes infinitive (cards 13-18)
Subject Pronouns and Conjugated Verb, student completes sentence (cards 19-24)
- Sentence with Verb Missing, students chooses verb and writes form (cards 25-30)
- Infinitive, student writes complete sentence (cards 31-36)
These activities can be done in writing (response sheet included) or orally.
There are 5 categories of prompts in each vocabulary task card set. Prompts include:
- Picture with choice of 4 words (cards 1-12)
- Word with choice of 3 pictures (cards 13-18)
- Fill in missing letters (cards 19-24)
- 2 pictures, student writes words (cards 25-30)
- Picture, student writes a sentence with the word (cards 31-36)
