Check out the preview for ideas of how I use these in my classroom to keep my kiddos learning during transitions!
You can read below how I use them in my classroom.
I run math stations in my classroom and, after our whole group lesson, students engage in one of three activities- math with the teacher, game with a friend, math on the computer. As we rotate through each station, we meet for a mini-lesson on the rug, much like Daily Five. I started to realize how the minutes were adding up as we waited for kids to pick up partner games or log off computers while we waited on the rug.
SO, MATH TRANSITION CARDS were born. I created this set as a way for us to get a little extra skill practice in while waiting for friends to finish up and join us on the rug.
I copied each different type of card on a different color paper, hole punched, and put on a binder ring. I’m a risk taker, so I didn’t even laminate and they have lasted all school year. It hangs on the wall near our rug area and is a quick way to engage waiting students and encourage other students to transition quickly so they can join us!
They never know which TRANSITION CARDS we’re going to do and what we’ll do with them… the guessing keeps them engaged and motivated to participate!
