"Teacher, I'm Done!" Task Cards


 I received a few questions about how, where and when I use my task cards. 

You know the students that ALWAYS have everything done correct and quick?
They are the friends that have a TASK CARD booklet in their desk!
 (Right now I have 9 students in my classroom using them...
many are improving their work to get one ;)
Whenever they have completed their assignment and are caught up with everything they are invited to
walk over to the wall and choose a set of task cards they have not completed in their monthly booklet.
Yes... I said wall... I'm all for simplicity. 
 Each set is on a silver ring and each ring is hanging on a pushpin.
Easy to get... easy to return. 

Switching out the months is just as easy!  I grab a dozen rubber bands, take off the ring... rubber band the set... put the  new set on the ring and hang it up!

Hi! What a cool idea. You know, I often hit the blogs of the teachers here and I have to confess there are so many creative and resourceful people! I think being your pupils is the award for them. I don't communicate with my teachers but I truly love my professors! You know, one of my Ph.Ds recommended me to use essay writing services UK! Just imagine! Where is it possible to get such recommendation from the professor! I don't know:)

I've read a lot of similar articles, but absolutely honestly I can say that your one is the best of them. I have a very similar life story and I probably write an article on this topic using the help of the online writing service cuz my skills are really bad. I will you good luck in future!

Okay so I have every month of Task cards and now my biggest concern is organizing them!
How do you do it?
Each month comes with 12 sets that are relatively thick. How do you organize and store these?
I leave the ones for the month out, but then the old ones are just piled.

You are a wonderful teacher, I hope that nowadays there are a lot of such an intelligent teachers as you. Honestly I hated my teachers, because they were terrible and I had to use https://academic-consultants.com/research-paper-writing/. I had not enough skills to do it by myself.
