Independent Reading Digital Task Cards: Reader’s Response Activities for ANY Book or Novel

Independent Reading Digital Task Cards: Reader’s Response Activities for ANY Book or Novel

This teaching resource includes 30 Independent Reading Task Cards and Reader’s Response Activities for Google Drive! The Reading Task Cards can be used to analyze ANY book or novel. Students will type their responses to the Reading Task Card prompts by typing directly into the pre-inserted text boxes using Google Slides or Microsoft Power Point. Ample room on each Google Slide Task Card has been provided in order for students to fully respond to the question or prompt. This is a no-prep way for teachers to assess students when they choose independent reading books, and they ALL have different novels! Microsoft OneDrive users can also easily download the Task Cards as a power point file in order to allow students to access use. A task card response sheet has been provided for teachers who prefer a printing option. Teachers can also follow the guidelines to print the task cards in order to use them in centers or in collaborative groups instead of the digital version. The 30 Reading Task Cards have a modern design, bright borders, and picture high-interest and icons that will heighten the visual interest of your student and will enable them to make connections to the task cards’ topics and prompts. The prompts and questions allow for differentiation with students. Students will enjoy the appeal of the task cards that use emoticons and hashtags. The Reading Task Cards will also encourage students to make self-to-self and self-to-world connections to the text! The Reading Task Cards are designed to also allow students to do the choosing! One activity idea included and described in this resource is to give students the opportunity to choose 10 of the 30 Task Card prompts and respond to a novel that they have individually chosen! The Task Cards allows you to further differentiate and personalize their learning by giving them choice! This resource includes the following: 30 Editable Reading Task Cards on Google Slides; A Separate Teacher’s File with a Template of Blank Poetry Task Cards in Order to Add Additional Cards in the Future; An Optional Task Card Response Handout for Printing; A Task Card with Directions for Students Implementation Suggestions and Teacher Notes; Access and Share Directions for Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, G Suite for Education, and Google Classroom Users; Directions for Optional Printing.

Inventions that changed our lives

Inventions that changed our lives

Today, we are going to look at some of the inventions that have changed our lives. Automatic washing machines (1962) changed how people did their washing. Many people used to use twin tub washing machines, before moving onto a front loader washing machine. Many people in the USA and Canada use top loaders. In 1963, the fridge freezer was introduced. It helped revolutionise how we stored food, without having to can, pickle or dry it. Two years later, in 1965, dishwashers first appeared. I got my first one in 2007. My parents had one back in the ’90s.
