This week on Educents, there is an offer for Printable Task Cards for Language Skills! Educents has been a great resource for me for educational activities, but I always get excited when I see something from a fellow SLP!
Let's start with the basics, directly from Educents:
ELA, vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, word meanings, prepositionsWhat's included?
- 130 cards addressing categorization; some with visual cues and some without, with a total of 84 different questions.
- 24 different multiple meaning words cards. Many words in English language have more than 1 meaning. For some students with severe language disorders, the ability to learn a limited number of vocabulary words for a larger number of contexts is an advantage. For others with less severe language disorders, this can be confusing. Reading comprehension can be impacted by inability to understand word meanings.
- 48 cards addressing plural nouns, 24 cards for possessive and 20 for pronouns. Some have picture choices for responding.
- 32 prepositions cards, in a multiple choice format, with visual cues. Those cards are repeated without the choices, for a fill-in format. There is a game board and a spinner, with answer forms and student response forms for all sets."
That's a lot for one set, right? Well this week, I had the opportunity to check out the "category" section. Like it says above, there are 130 cards in total.
There are various types of questions on these cards. One: Find the category with and without visuals.
There are also multiple choice questions:
What I Like:
I like that there are so many different task cards, including but not limited to categories. I could find task cards in this set, one for every language goal my students have. I like that these task cards provide many opportunities for my students to work on their goals. I really like that she included some with visual supports.
What I'd Like To See Improved:
This is not a huge deal, but there is a lot of waste space on these cards. There is a lot of white space. While this is appreciated for some students, there is not a lot of visual appeal to the cards.
