FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Fact and Opinion Task Cards”

by A Classroom for All Seasons

3rd – 5th Grade


Fact and Opinion Task Cards


This is a small sample of my task card collection. These differentiated task cards are larger than normal (8 questions each) so students can work on just one card. More advanced students may complete more than one card.
There are multiple tasks on each card. Great for literacy centers, early finishers, the Daily Five and small group intervention!
A “user friendly” method of displaying them is to laminate them, punch a hole in the corner and attach them with a binder ring.

• 6 Task Cards (8 questions each) + Answer Keys (Both black and white and colored backgrounds included)
• Recording sheet to show completion of each card

Topics include:
• Fact and Opinion (Decide if each statement is a fact or an opinion.)
• Fact and Opinion Writing (Choose a topic and write one fact and one opinion statement.)
• Fact and Opinion (Read both statements. Decide which is the opinion and which is the fact.)

Suggested uses:
• Laminate to use year after year.
• Place in a literacy center.
• Punch a a hole in the corner of each card and attach with
a loose leaf binder ring.

Poetry Lesson on Sonnets (Shakespeare and Browning)



Poetry Lesson on Sonnets (Shakespeare and Browning)


Lesson on Sonnets

This mini bundle includes a sonnet from William Shakespeare (#130) and a sonnet from Elizabeth Browning (How do I Love Thee?). In this activity, students will compare the different tones and forms from both poems. One is beautiful and romanticizes love, and the other sees love realistically (and a little meanly if you ask me). Students will identify the different types of sonnets, the figurative language found within their lines, and will have the opportunity to write their own.

Students get to see another side of Shakespeare from his sonnet. Students always love his realistic, yet sarcastic portayal of love.

The mini bundle includes:
– a detailed lesson plan for the teacher
– student notes (the poems) and activity
– an annotated copy of the poems as well as a comprehensive answer key.

The entire unit contains 4 pages.
