Each of these 150 “Thinkable” cards has a different higher level thinking activity. Each one relates to some aspect of English Language Arts – literature, grammar, or vocabulary. Your students are sure to love these cards!
Thinkables can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom. One possibility is to create a center with the Thinkable cards and materials for completing the activities. Students can use the included Recording Chart to keep track of which cards they have completed. Simply circle, stamp, or use a sticker to cover the number of the card that has been completed. Students do not need to complete the cards in order and can work throughout the year whenever they have extra time.
Another option is to create a Thinkables journal for students to use for their work. Display one card on the document camera for all students to complete. You may also want to allow time for students to share their answers. Journals could also be used independently.
In addition, most of these cards could also be used without the writing component simply by having students discuss possible answers.
These cards are meant to be printed out in color and laminated, but will work find in grayscale. Cutting guidelines are included (the cards have been spaced to include the edges of the page in order to reduce cutting time).
