Thank you for purchasing the Baseball 4 Digit Subtraction Story Task Cards. This set of 24 task cards is a fun and engaging way to ensure that your students are proficient in subtracting 4 digit numbers.
Included in this packet you will find:
- 24 Task Cards
- Answer Sheet
- Answer Key
- Scoot Game Instructions
These task cards were born out of the fact that my daughter despises subtraction. wanted to make it more appealing to her, so I turned to her favorite thing of all-- Star Wars. There is a mix of story problems, all of which revolve around Star Wars characters and scenarios. Some problems require regrouping, while others do not.
My favorite way to implement task cards is to play Scoot. This game gets the students up and moving, which helps to break up the monotony of sitting at the same desk throughout the day. In case you aren't familiar with this game, I have included an instruction sheet. It can be used with any set of task cards you have!
This is also a great resource for homeschool students as well. I like to place the cards all around my home and my daughter will scoot to each one in a similar manner as in a classroom setting.
Of course, that isn't the only way these task cards can be used. They also work well in math centers, as a task for early finishers, and as extra engaging work for your eager learners.
For resources that are not consumable, such as the task cards, I do recommend printing on cardstock and laminating so that you can use them over and over again.
Thank you again for your purchase. I hope you enjoy the Baseball 4 Digit Subtraction Story Task Cards as much as I do.
