Elementary Reading Task Cards
We use the classical method of teaching reading. This is where we choose books, above their level of reading to read together and books that are just right for them to read on their own. So I needed something that would make sure that we are covering all of the reading skills, that needed to be covered in a grade. I looked around at a lot of different reading task cards online, but I couldn’t seem to find any cards that were simple and easy to use. Plus, most of the cards cost money. A lot of cards had small stories on them, that used only one reading skill. I wanted my daughter to be able to read any story, and then pull out a reading task card and be able to answer it in her journal. So I decided to create my own. I can now rest assured, knowing that we are covering all the reading skills needed for third grade.
Since, I had such a good response with the third grade reading task cards, I decided to make cards for second, fourth and fifth grade. These cards follow the common core standards that your child is expected to learn, if they were in public school. Now, I know that most of you are probably thinking, I do not want to follow the common core standards. That is one of the reasons that I homeschool my kids. Well, I am here to tell you that it is not the standards that people are frustrated with in the public school system, it is the manner and material used to teach the common core standards. I promise you that if you download these task cards, you will see, that these cards are very well constructed from proper standards at each grade level. This will allow you to make sure that you are hitting all of the reading standards, at your child’s grade level, using any book that you and your family chooses.
