Get Task Cards
I have created over 120 sets of task cards that you can get for your classroom. Most have either 24 or 32 cards per set and include student answer sheets and answer keys when applicable. Many are aligned with Common Core Standards. Most are priced at under $3.00. A few of the sets are even free! Here is a sample of just a few of the sets that you will find in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. You can find a catalog of all of them, organized alphabetically by subject on this google doc.
