Causation cards are a fun, interactive way to review vocabulary and concepts that students need to learn. This particular set of causation cards has a back to school theme so that you can start the new year off with a light and fun–yet educational–note!

This Product Includes:

✓ A set of back to school-themed causation cards

With This Product You’ll Get:

✓ Numbered cards for correct ordering

✓ Notes about necessary props where applicable

✓ Integration of speaking and listening skills

✓ Opportunities to build fluency, prosody, and reading accuracy

✓ A blank set of cards so you can modify or add material to this set of your liking; the matching font is Georgia, so you can type it, print it, and tape it on a blank card

How You Can Use This Product:

✓ Teacher reads the starting card, but this is not always necessary.

✓ Each student has to listen carefully to other students to know when it is their turn.

✓ You will find the end of a statement the previous student said in red, the action to be performed in green, and what that particular student who has the card says in black.

✓ Card will state an action that a student must perform and a statement they must say. The action can be something simple from jumping in the air to drawing on the board. The statement can be a definition of a term or related concept.

✓ Review activity

✓ Introductory activity

**If you choose to print in black and white, you can simply highlight the actions in one color and the previous student’s statement in another.**

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale. I have also provided a black and white version.
