A set of five literacy rotation task cards to be used in conjunction with the first edition of Teach Starter’s Grade 3 magazine.
Take the stress out of your literacy planning with these comprehensive task cards!
What are these task cards for?
These task cards have been designed specifically for use with the first edition of Teach Starter’s Grade 3 magazine, What’s Buzzing?
How do I use the magazine and task cards for literacy groups?
In countless ways!
One way is you could assign each literacy group an article for the week, then allow the students to work through the five sets of task cards that accompany that article. Then the groups will rotate through each article each week until all of the groups have read and completed all of the articles and task cards.
Another way is to have the students read through each article during guided reading with you, and complete the task cards that accompany the article with their reading groups during reading centers.
Teachers, please read over the articles before you plan your activities. Some content may need teacher guidance depending on students abilities.
What types of task cards are included?
Five sets of task cards have been included. These address the areas of writing, language, comprehension, reading strategies, and higher-order thinking skills.
