Task Card Acronym

I have a lot of teachers in my school and in the blogging world ask me about task cards.  How do I use them?  What are they good for?  Why task cards instead of worksheets? Do kids like them? How often do you use them?  Obviously, I'm a huge proponent of their use in classrooms, for all of the reasons I have mentioned on this blog so far.  Task cards are awesome for differentiation, sub plans, reading response, for early finishers, for playing SCOOT, and for test prep.  But they are also a great resource for getting kids up and actively thinking, they are awesome for assessment, and they keep kids engaged (trust me on this one)!

I wanted something that I could use to show people a quick overview of not only how I use task cards, but also why I love them and invest my time in creating them and using them in my class.  So, I came up with this goofy little task card acronym.

I will be devoting an entire blog post to each of these subjects (if I haven't already), but I wanted to share this now since I think it's easy to understand and might spark an idea for you and all the task cards you have or are planning to have.   Stay tuned for some more task card inspiration, and in the meantime, take a look around Task Card Corner for more ideas on how best you can enhance your teaching with task cards!
