Task card Answer Keys provided as well if student self-checking is preferred!
Task card word problems and task card answer keys are formatted in color AND Black/White to better accommodate your printing preferences- AS A BONUS- I’ve included A MINI FORMAT SET OF TASK CARD WORD PROBLEMS & ANSWER KEYS IN BLACK/WHTE for economical printing if paper is an issue!
**Two versions of a printable student answer document are provided to assist with student accountability. As you are well aware, when some students are working in less structured environments such as centers or small collaborative learning groups, they are often distracted from the task at hand. Student answer documents provide a visual piece to remind students of their accountability for number work at the end of the work period.
DOCUMENTATION/AUTHENTIC WORK SAMPLES
Student answer documents are also excellent for using as documentation of number practice for a given skill as well as great work samples of authentic pieces of student work when some type of substantiation is required for math portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conferences, special education placement conferences, etc.
**Differentiation is addressed by the level of difficulty in word problem scenarios. Student answer documents are also convenient when making differentiated assignments- you can easily assign specific task cards by circling the desired workspaces of the problems a student is to complete.
**Answer Keys are provided in 2 formats:
1. as individual task cards -if student self-checking is preferred
2. OR in a traditional answer key that is teacher friendly when grading task card number work as graded assignments.
These task cards are flexible resources and can be used in many ways such as:
*number work for math centers
*number work for small collaborative groups
*whiteboard work for whole class assignments
*whiteboard work during transitions
*meaningful engagement and practice for early finishers
*as assessment/benchmark check-ups
* as math journal entries
You can never have too many of these kinds of resources to reinforce skills- especially on days when regular classroom routines are disrupted by activities such as school picture day, assemblies, etc.
