These cards were designed to be used for fast finishers, but they would also be great at a center. Another option is to select one card to use with the whole class for a fun bell-work activity. Here are a couple cards from the set.
While some of the activities on these cards do correlate with Common Core Standards (for example one card require students to write persuasively and several others deal with figurative language), this particular set was not designed with the Common Core in mind. I am a big believer in the importance of teaching creative and critical thinking and it was with that goal that I created these cards. If you are looking for an autumn resource based on Common Core Standards, you may want to check out Autumn ELA Task Cards, which focus on a variety of the Language standards.
