CFU Cards

These cards give teachers a quick and easy way to assess students while activating critical thinking skills. They can be used in most grade levels and subject areas will little adjustments. I like how they give me an example of how to move students through the levels of thinking.

Love it!

I love these cards! I have used them with my special education, tier III and GT students. My students love them. They are the perfect size to fit in my case where I hold all my flash cards and centers activities. These cards make it easy to give quick assessments and students have fun in the process.
