Common Core Language Task Cards
Whether you are a fan of CCSS or not, these cards on a ring are a versatile way for your students to practice some basic language skills. Each deck includes 48 double-sided cards, two book rings and a teacher guide with answers. Cards are 3.5"x 5.5" and have two multiple-choice questions per side with a punched hole in the corner. The corresponding standard is identified next to each question. The guide gives ideas for creating classroom centers around the use of these cards. In the homeschool, I can see these being a good independent activity while a student is waiting with time for Mom or Dad, making a game of them with a sibling or even having them in the car while driving to lessons or co-op! Oh, and they are good prep for grade level testing in a fun way. Here are some sample questions:
