#100: How to Use Task Cards in Your Classroom

effective teaching Jun 16, 2022

You have probably heard of task cards or even tried them in your classroom. But, do you honestly know a lot about the best ways to use task cards in your classroom?

Not to worry! Today, the 100th episode of The Teach Joyully Podcast is all about how to use task cards. 

To celebrate to 100th episode of The Teach Joyfully Podcast I'm giving away a $100 TeachersPayTeachers gift card. Down below  are the all details to enter the drawing.


Teaching with task cards might seem like it just makes things more complicated or maybe task cards feel like one more thing to do. 

I get that. I do think task cards make formative assessments so much easier though. So it might be more work upfront until you get the hang of creating task cards, but in the long run, those task cards will pay off big time.

Like anything, learning something new or adding in a new piece takes practice. This piece gets easier the more you do it.

Don't forget to grab the sample task cards here. 

In this episode, I talk about:

  • What task cards are and why they're helpful.
  • 7 uses for task cards in your classroom 
  • 11 examples of ways to incorporate them into your curriculum [with examples for task cards for math, writing, science, and more].
