Get your students excited for summer! Use these Summer Fun Task Cards to practice solving word problems. Use them as a fun math review before you send your students off for summer vacation! Solving word problems is always challenging for our students. The more practice they get, the better! These word problem task cards work great for Math Centers, during small group work, or as a whole class activity. Many of us either work in a Summer School setting, or tutor during the summer months. These cards are a perfect “no prep” addition to your summer math review.
A Student Recording Sheet (see preview) and Summer Fun Task Mat assist students with organizing their thoughts, work, and answers. The Task Mat asks students to identify the Task Card #, key word or phrases in the word problem, the operation(s) needed to solve, a place to draw a picture to help with solving the word problem, a space to write the equation(s), and finally, a space for the answer, including the correct label, all with a fun summer theme!
Simply print out the cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock or construction paper before laminating, to make them extra sturdy. Store them either in a basket or plastic bag, or hole punch each card and store on a binder ring for easy access.
Task cards like these just “cry out” for a game of SCOOT! if you’re using them for classroom work. These cards look best in color, but if you don't have access to a color printer, or want to use them with the whole class, another option is to simply print out the cards in grayscale, Student Recording Sheet and Task Mat (both of which are in black and white for printing ease), and provide to students as a “packet” to be worked on during that last week of school as a “When You’re Finished” project.
