As you work with students on addition and subtraction with 2-digit and 3-digit numbers, do you have some students who "get it" quickly and could use an extension? If so, this set of no-prep challenge tasks is what you have been looking for!
This set of 10 challenge problems and set of 1-9 digit cards could be used as a math center or in a math journal with 2nd and 3rd graders. Students cut apart the digit cards and use them in a different way to solve each challenge. Challenges involve applying an understanding of place value and addition/subtraction and have different possible solutions, which leads to student-led math discussions! Students are also given the opportunity to explain their thinking in writing about some aspect of the challenge. You could post one new challenge per day or even per week so that all students might have a chance to try them!
This set of challenges will stretch your students to use higher level thinking!
