Do your learners enjoy task cards? Are you looking for a fun, engaging “getting to know you” activity for your class? If your answer is yes to one, or both, of these questions, look no further! This product is perfect for those first few days of a new school year. Not only that, but they are task cards, with a twist. In this activity, learners will pair up and ask each other questions about their partner. Then, they’ll present a few fun facts about their partner to the class, allowing everyone to learn something new about their classmates. This set of 20 task cards is not limited to the beginning of the school year. It can be used for learners who need practice with social skills, English language learners, or as an ice breaker in counseling/therapy sessions. The presentation portion of the activity also helps your learners strengthen their skills as part of the ELA speaking and listening standards. There are four question designs including “would you rather?,” “what is your favorite?,” “this or that?,” and “howdy partner.” If this activity proves to be a hit with your learners, laminate the task cards for future use and durability. This will save you time and money in the long run. You can use the task cards with individuals or in small/large group settings. They are the perfect indoor or outdoor activity and allow your learners to get up and moving within their educational environment. All 20 cards are available in a color version, as well as a black and white version. Please note, both versions are identical. The answer recording page contains two ½ sheets to reduce the number of copies and ink/toner used.
