The Task Cards have been created to support Classical, Charlotte Mason and Montessori educational styles. It is geared to students grades K- 8. Each Task Card has several tasks to complete. These tasks are written so that students from different age groups can use them. The aim is to set up an environment where the student has the resources needed to complete the tasks before they start. Younger students can get help from the parent, while older student can work more independently.
