I always love finding ways to get my students up and around during a classroom activity.
The struggle comes with trying to get them moving around the room WHILE ALSO keeping them focused on what they need to be doing.
Enter: task cards.
In the past, I've used task cards a few times a year, for specific content tasks.
However, this year, my group of kiddos REALLY needs to move often, so in addition to my usual few groups of task cards, I have purchased & downloaded several sets of pre-made task cards on Teachers Pay Teachers.
I have them use a piece of notebook paper on a clipboard.
They number from 1-24, skipping lines, and find their own task card to stand by to start.
They know that they are not to be standing at the same card as another student.
This year, I only have 16 students, so this is easy to manage.
If I had more students, I would add more task cards so each child always had a free one to go to.
You are welcome to download this task card template and use it in your own classroom!
