Hi there! First thing is first: IT’S SPRING BREAK over at Casa de Mountain View! I had big plans for pumping out some TpT goodies, and I have two massive blog posts in the works, but my sweet girls have changed my plans–no computers, no iPads (except for the occasional Skype with Gramma & Grampa)…just playtime. I did carve out some time after bedtime to share how we prepared for state testing using task cards. But first… I need to announce why it’s not going to show up here… Instead, the post about test prep with task cards is posted up at……
I get emails all the time about using task cards in the classroom, so I decided that I would make a live blog about using task cards in the classroom. It’s BRAND spanking new, so I hope you will check it out and maybe become a follower. It’s a work in progress and still under construction, but I have big plans for my new “baby,” and I am hoping to make it a great resource for all things task cards–not only MY task cards, but also those of others who are awesome, too.
Shameless plug: If you are interested in guest blogging or featuring YOUR task cards at Task Card Corner, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Let’s chat about what you think the world would love to hear about task cards!
The blog officially has two posts, and I hope you take the time to read them both… The first one you will see is a big one about how I used task cards for test prep. It includes a freebie that you can edit to suite your needs.
The second post is the introduction post–how it came to be, my vision, etc. I will still be chatting up task cards over here, because I’m addicted to them, but it will separate some of that chatter amidst all of the other cool things I have planned for this blog, too.
Happy spring break, or happy almost spring break, or happy you-already-had-spring-break!
I’m so glad you are here. I’m a current gifted and talented teacher in a small town in Colorado, and I’ve been in education since 2009. My passion (other than my family and cookies) is for making teachers’ lives easier and classrooms more engaging.
