Introducing Grammar Reinforcement Task Cards


Grammar Reinforcement Task Card Sets are comprised of discovery-oriented tasks designed to facilitate engaged learning and exploration of the elements and mechanics of language.

Your students will investigate the parts of speech and reinforce key language arts content through recitation, copy work, included hands-on activities, and projects.

Grammar Reinforcement Task Card Sets include two sets of task cards, forty-one cards altogether, and an Introduction to the course. The course is designed for 2nd through 6th grade students and may be used to introduce or reinforce grammar concepts.





“Only in grammar can you be more than perfect.”
~ William Safire

Introducing Art and Artists Task Cards

Creek Edge Press is pleased to announce that Art and Artists Task Card Sets are now available.

Art and Artists Task Card Sets are comprised of discovery-oriented tasks designed to facilitate engaged learning about the world of art.
Students will investigate and explore the elements and genres of art, journey through the history of art, and take an in-depth look at the lives, work, and influence of pivotal artists. Applied Art tasks encourage skill development through instruction in drawing, exploration of the elements of art, and copying the works of master artists.

Art and Artists Task Card Sets include three sections of Student Task Cards designed to be used over the course of three to four years of study, An Introduction to the Course, and Supporting Links for your preparation and reference. The Course is designed for students of all ages and includes High School Objectives for those using the course to fulfill a fine arts credit.
