Teacher’s Guide: This detailed 14-page guide includes ideas for organizing your task cards, organizing response sheets, scoring completed tasks, and answers FAQs.

204 Making Meaning Task Cards (Printable and Google Classroom Formats): These tasks require students to apply 2nd grade math skills to solve complex word problems using precise math models.

80 Challenge Task Cards (Printable and Google Classroom Formats): These tasks are designed to provide enrichment opportunities to students who have mastered the math concepts you’ve introduced. Each task requires critical thinking and the ability to apply 2nd grade math skills to solve more advanced and complex problems.

76 Transfer Task Cards (Printable and Google Classroom Formats): These tasks are designed for students who are ready to demonstrate their mastery of 3rd grade math content through carefully-crafted summative assessment problems.  Each of these higher-order tasks requires students to evaluate, design, analyze, make connections, or find patterns while problem solving.

★ Printable & Google Slides Recording Sheets: The three printable and two digital recording sheet formats included help you scaffold and differentiate the problem solving process for the learners in your classroom. Each recording sheet format includes space for students to:

  • Record and analyze the math word problem.
  • Create labeled math models showing how to solve the problem.
  • Record their solution in a complete sentence.

★ 2 Completed Digital Task Card Samples: These completed samples feature Task 12 from the Second Grade Place Value Word Problem Solving Task Card Collection and can be used to set work quality expectations for your students as they familiarize themselves with these task cards. Sample 1 models how to use the “Simple Solution” recording sheet format, and Sample 2 models how to use the “Solution with Explanation” recording sheet format.

PEDAGOGY:

Multi-step word problems are one of the greatest challenges for many students. We should be providing students with daily opportunities to tackle complex word problems in the classroom so they can truly master this challenging skill.

These math problem solving tasks are carefully crafted so students routinely practice their ability to:

★ Carefully analyze what math skills are required to find a solution.

★ Create detailed math models that show their math reasoning.

★ Record their solution in a complete sentence.

***************************************************************************

DESIGNED TO FIT YOUR MATH BLOCK:

Now you can easily give your students more practice solving complex word problems without having to prep your own for each unit. Here are a few ways you can use these task cards as an instructional tool in your classroom:

★ Guided practice during small group work

★ Step-by-step modeling during mini lessons

★ Guided math conversations with parent volunteers, teacher’s aides, or teacher

★ Independent practice during math workshop, guided math, math centers, or Daily 3

★ Word problem solving station during math centers

★ Formative assessment tool throughout math units

★ Summative assessment tool at the end of math units (Transfer Tasks are designed specifically for this purpose)

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
