✴ To Print Task Cards: The Task Cards, as downloaded, are 1/2 page which are great for students that need a larger size. To print 4x6 index card-sized task cards, select "2 pages per sheet". To print 3x5 index card-sized task cards, select "4 pages per sheet". These are not designed to print directly to index card template paper. What has worked best for my students was to print on heavy-duty card stock and laminate.
