  • 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 🙂

    • 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: https://teachstarter.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201085749-How-do-I-print-my-resource-in-the-correct-size-
