    Is this available as a Word doc so that I could add more advanced activities?
    Thank you 🙂

    Any chance we could get these in a smaller size? Im looking for 4, 6 or 8 per page rather than one per page! Thanks.

    Emma Walker · Jul 26th, 2017

    Thank you very much!

    · Dec 17th, 2016

    Oh fantastic! Thanks for that tip 🙂

    Deanne Moller · Apr 24th, 2015

    These are fantastic!
    I think they would be even better if there was an option to have them smaller, like 8 task cards to a page for small group word work or homework task cards.

    Great resource though 🙂

    Deanne Moller · Apr 19th, 2015

    Stay tuned Deanne! That option is coming soon 🙂

    In the meantime, try printing multiple pages per sheet of paper. You can find out more here:
