Get Your Task Card Handbook for FREE!



I decided to write this free ebook because teachers often ask me for ideas about how to use and store task cards – or even why they should use them at all. There are bunches of answers to all these questions and so I thought it would be a good idea to put them all in one place. If you are new to task cards, this ebook will tell you everything you need to know. You will also find links to free sets of task cards – so you can try before you buy. If you already use task cards you are sure to find a some new ideas – there are quite a few!
This ebook is 25 pages long and full of ideas for prepping, using, and storing task cards. There are also plenty of pictures of task cards being used in the classroom as well as tips and ideas. Here are what a few other teachers have said about this book:

What an amazing resource for anyone who wants to know how to use task cards! Thanks!
-Laura Candler

What an amazingly thorough look at task cards! You have thought of everything here. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise with the world.

- Jill aka Utah Roots

I've been using task cards for years, but this gave me several more ideas on how to use them, and some great ideas for organizing them! Thanks!

-Sally DeCost of Elementary Matters

It is totally free, so why not download it now? I would also be thrilled if you would share it with your friends and colleagues, both online and off. It makes a terrific pin!

I would love to hear how YOU use task cards with your students. Please share your thoughts and ideas.

Happy Teaching,

Rachel, this resource is great! I have lots and lots of your task cards. My students love them. They are great for reinforcement, small groups and especially review! Thanks for the "surprise" too. One way I like to use them is for partner review. I have several of those popper pals and we use the task cards to answer the questions. If answered correctly, the player gets to squeeze the popper and try to get the ball in a basket. They can earn a point for a correct answer and a bonus point for getting in the basket. It's hard to pry them away from this activity!
