This task cards set contains 20 task cards to help your students practice representing numbers using base ten blocks. There are a variety of question types which helps prepare students for the types of problems they will encounter on standardized tests.
These task cards ask students to:
-Write the number represented by a given set of base ten blocks to the thousands place
-Write the number represented by a set of blocks, and then tell what the new number would be if a certain number of blocks were added or subtracted
-Represent a given number, to the thousands place, using base ten blocks or drawings (symbols are suggested for each block to help students draw pictures)
-Analyze example representations for errors and explain thinking
-Represent numbers to the thousands in more than one way
There is a blank recording sheet provided for your students to record their answers. There is also an answer key which can be used by teachers or students to check work. The answer key is formatted exactly the same as the recording sheet to make grading quick and easy.
Ideas for use:
Task cards are great for use with guided math groups, at math centers, as at home activities, for early finishers, or for differentiating in 3rd and 5th grades. You might also find them to be useful as a supplement to those math lessons which have fewer practice problems than others. I love the idea of pulling a few cards here and there from previous used sets of cards to review and keep concepts fresh! Just assign a problem to a group or the whole class.
