This resource includes:
**20 task cards (A TOTAL OF 40 word problems) in a BLACK and WHITE FORMAT for convenience when printing on a copier. AND NOW IN MINI FORMAT FOR ECONOMICAL PRINTING!
**Each task card has a two step (or multi-step) word problem aligned with CCSS 2.OA.1.
**A printable student answer document is 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 groups, they are often distracted from the task at hand. Student answer documents provide a visual piece to remind students that they are accountable for number work at the end of the work period.
Student answer documents are also excellent for using as documentation/examples of authentic pieces of student work when evidence 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 numbered 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 work 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
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.
