Because it never seems like enough practice activities for this skill, we created this card sort. These cards will print four on a page.
We have included heading labels. You can then sort the cards. Each fact has a coordinating opinion.
After printing on card stock, we suggest laminating for durability.
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 which category it goes in.
- Give students a fact. Have them write their own coordinating opinion.
- Give students an opinion. Have them write their own coordinating fact.
- As an extension, encourage students to write their own cards to add to your center!
