    ring to hold them together or put topics in photo boxes.

        (e.g., clothespins, dot markers, stickers, etc.).

How do I use them?

  1. Centers: Have an assortment or assigned ones in a center. They can be completed independently (independent level) or with a staff member (instructional level).
  2. 1:1 instruction: Use task cards at the instructional level to work on individual student goals! You can take data on student responses lickety-split.
  3. In lieu of a worksheet: Sometimes it’s more fun to work on a task card than a worksheet.
