Use Task Cards to Review a Variety of Topics

The Super Teacher Worksheets collection of printable task cards features a variety of elementary math and ELA topics. Your students have worked hard this year to master math concepts like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, area, fractions, and decimals, as well as ELA concepts like nouns and other parts of speech. Task cards provide a great way to revisit these topics at the end of the school year. Here are a few different ways you can use printable task cards with your students:

Classroom Learning Centers or Stations

Classroom Learning Centers with Task Cards

Task cards are the ideal activity for learning centers or stations. Use one set of task cards per learning center to rotate through different review topics, or divide several sets of task cards among different learning stations for mixed review (e.g., addition with and without regrouping). Review different skill sets each time you use learning centers.

Small Groups or Partner Work

Task cards also lend themselves well to small group activities. Students can work in pairs or in small groups to quiz one another with task cards. Every set of task cards from Super Teacher Worksheets comes with an answer key, so students can fact-check one another quickly and conveniently. Children can take turns asking and answering questions covering a wide range of topics during small group or partner review time.

Daily or Weekly Challenges

Daily Challenges with Task Cards

Another popular way to use task cards is to post them for your class as either a daily or weekly challenge. It’s a great way to fit in some review as a morning warm-up. Daily task card challenges pair wonderfully with other daily math review activities in the Super Teacher Worksheets collection. Check out our Math Buzz Daily Math Review worksheets as well as our Daily Word Problems for additional everyday review activities.

Whole Class Review Time

Task cards are also convenient for review sessions with the whole class when you magnify them with your whiteboard’s document camera. Print out a set and review a topic all together. Later, your students can revisit the material in learning centers, small group activities, or at home.

At-Home Review Time

Finally, task cards are a great way to liven up individual review time at home. You can laminate task card sets and have students write on them with dry erase markers so they can be used again and again. Keep sets of task cards together with key chain rings for portable review. Whether your students practice at school, at home, or on the go, task cards make it easy and convenient to review skills on demand.

We hope you enjoy using task cards from Super Teacher Worksheets for review time with your class.

Let’s finish the school year strong!
