Using task cards has always been something I have loved to utilize with my students.; and they tend to love them as much as I do. They can be used many different ways. They can be used as a center activity; as a game with a partner or the entire class; used as a scavenger hunt around the classroom; and even for an early finisher. I love that I can make my own and adapt them to fit the needs of my students.
One of the reasons that I love using task cards, is that it is a way to get my students out of their seats for our 90 minute mathematics block. Ninety minutes can be a long time. This is especially wonderful for my students with focusing issues, as well as some of my squirmy 11 and 12 year old boys in class. Another way we get our students out of their seats and moving is during Guided Math time. These tasks cards are perfect to use at a center/station during this time of math class as well.
