Fact or Opinion Sorting Cards

by Jill & Cathy on September 26, 2014

Fact or Opinnion Card Sort from The Curriculum Cormer  It can be difficult for students to differentiate between facts and opinions.  We have created materials in the past to help with this skill.  (You will find those here:  Fact or Opinion.  This collections includes class games, a file folder game and more.)

Fact or Opinion Sorting Cards

Because it never seems like enough, we created an additional fact or opinion sort.  These cards will print four on a page.  We have included headings labeled fact and opinion.  Each fact has a coordinating opinion.  Here are some ideas for using these cards:

  • Place at a literacy center and have students sort into the correct category.  Laminate and attach magnets to make it a center for your board.
  • You might even choose to use this as a game.  Hand out the cards and students must find their partner.  Have each class member share their statement and identify it as fact or opinion.
  • Give students a fact.  Have them write their own coordinating opinion.
  • Give students an opinion.  Have them write their own coordinating fact.

Do you have other ways you will use these cards?  Please share below!

Fantasy & Reality Card Sort

by Jill & Cathy on September 25, 2014

Fantasy or Reality Literacy Center Card Sort FREE from The Curriculum CornerSometimes it can be difficult to find independent tasks to go with your mini-lesson focus.  One time when we run across this in the classroom is when we are learning about genres.  Finding independent tasks that give the students practice differentiating between genres can be difficult.  We created a fantasy and reality card sort to give your students the opportunity to practice the difference between the genres.  You might choose to use this first during a mini-lesson and have the students work with you to sort the cards.  Or, place the cards at a center and have students work with their group to sort.  For students who are having a difficult time grasping the concept, these cards could be used during your small group instruction time with your guidance.
