Task Cards Organized by Guided Reading Level


Inference Task Cards


Main Idea Task Cards

These task cards are the ultimate in differentiated instruction.  For many years, guided reading books have been organized by levels.  Now, task cards are too!  Benefits of the task cards:
  • Each student is able to work on the same comprehension skills as his or her classmates but at a student's own guided reading level.
  • This document is a HUGE time saver when it comes to doing weekly lesson plans and organizing resources.  I save so much time when it comes to locating resources for my different guided reading groups.
  • Each bundle systematically reviews phonics sounds.  Students build comprehension  and phonics skills simultaneously.  The task cards are carefully worded so that students practice comprehension with specific phonics sounds and sight words. New sounds are introduced at each guided reading level and previous sounds are reviewed.
  • Each document contains plenty of comprehension/phonics practice. For example, the level A to I bundle contains 90 task cards.  
The document is a great time saver and value.

The student tracking form assists with monitoring progress as students move up through guided reading levels.

Phonics sounds that are introduced at each level include:

Level A:  Short Vowel Sounds
