Excellent resource for motivating and hands-on problem solving! This resource is a math operations (+, -, x, /) key chain for each student in your classroom. It focuses on the vocabulary that is often associated with each operation found in math word problems/ number stories. What a great way to reinforce math operation vocabulary with your students. Often times my students will say that they are "unlocking a word problem" using their very own math operations key chain.
There are 4 keys and a key chain label included in this resource. It is suggested that you print them on colored construction paper (8.5 x 11"). I use these with my students each year and have color-coded the keys.
Addition key- green paper
Multiplication key- pink paper
Division key- orange paper
Subtraction key- yellow paper
After printing this resource, just cut and assemble with a brass brad to hold the keys together. Your students will love this resource!
And if you like this resource, don't forget to rate it. Thank you!
I just purchased these from you. I am a fifth grade teacher and I was wondering if you can send me a editable version of the keys, I need to add more terms since I teach an upper elementary grade. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org
