These Read and Write Whole Numbers Place Value Task Cards align with the following Common Core Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
This is a set of 24 Read and Write Whole Number Task Cards. Each task card asks students to convert to either word form, standard form, or expanded form. It also asks students to identify the place value of digits in a number written in standard or word form. The challenge cards ask students not only to answer the problem, but to explain and justify their thinking. The strategy cards help struggling students by providing examples to coach them into understanding and to facilitate their learning. These cards are also differentiated for diverse learners; half of the problems are in a multiple-choice format to provide support for learners and prepare for end of grade tests while half of the problems are open-ended short answer so the teacher can monitor and analyze student thinking.
This set includes: 24 task cards, 2 challenge cards, 2 strategy cards for scaffolding, an accountability sheet, and an answer key.
Task cards can be used in small group instruction, as a center activity, or for your fast finishers. In my classroom, my students each have a task card journal. They glue in the recording sheet to their notebook,
and then when they have completed a set and are ready for me to check it, they turn it into the task card tray. I also have a box for task cards that we have already introduced. Students work on them when they finish an assessment, or if they are fast finishers.
These cards print great on any colored cardstock. I recommend laminating them for longer use!
