There are so many ways to use task cards: I have heard from teachers who use them in partners, with the whole class, and, of course, at centers. Here are pictures from two teachers who have graciously shared how they use task cards with their students.

Randy Seldomridge teaches in Granite Falls, NC. Here is what Randy says about the way he uses task cards to play Scoot with sixth graders:

These are some shots of my kids doing “scoot”-type stuff using your figurative language task cards with the freebie mini-breaks thrown in after every sixth task card.  As you can see, we moved out of the room into the hallway to do this.  With 28 students, it gets a bit too much to have all of that movement in the room.  They are spread out in the hall and actually work and are quite quiet.

Amy Lanham is a reading interventionist in Marvell, Arkansas. She has a challenging job working with a wide range of grade levels from elementary to high school! I love how she uses these prize globes to hold the cards. What a fun way for students to draw a random card! Imagine a center with a bowl full of them. If you can’t get a large number of these globes, you could also use plastic eggs, which are at stores everywhere for Easter right now.

Thanks so much to Randy and Amy for the pictures. If you are using my task cards with your students, I would be thrilled to see what you are doing with them. If I can use your pictures in a blog post, I will be happy to compensate you with free products from my TpT store. Of course, as in the photo above, I will block out student faces. Email photos to reallyrachel@gmail.com.
