### Description

This “Teaching Tandem” is full of fun and challenging ways to reinforce algebraic thinking in your students. The concepts covered vary from "What does 'equal' really mean?" to solving simple algebraic expressions such as "4n - 5 = 11". Listening to the dialogue and math talk is amazing—and all the directions (including photos) are included. This is another low ink, low prep resource that teaches so much more than just a worksheet.

The other part of this “tandem” is a set of task cards geared toward helping you teach the concept of equals with four leveled sets of task cards—perfect for whole class use, small groups, math stations, or even intervention groups. Enjoy!

**The two included resources are:**

**TEACHING TANDEMS!**

I have had **SO **many requests for resources to be bundled together to help teachers save money--and I do have many bundles in my store. Sometimes, however, there are two resources that are such perfect complements to each other, that many teachers end up buying both of them separately. After much thought--"Teaching Tandems" were born! Each one consists of two related products that, together, help make your teaching more complete--and now they can be purchased at a discounted price when you buy them together.

**PLEASE **make sure that you don't already own one of the two resources before purchasing!

Downloading the preview will give you the preview of each of the two resources so you can see what you get--as well as a brief document explaining why I paired the two together.
