3 Different Task Card Sets:
Number and Operations Base Ten
Number and Operations Fractions
Number and Operations Algebraic Thinking (two sets)
156 Task Cards in all
Task Cards are intended to be printed double sided so that one side has the question and the other has the question number and the aligned CCSS. I cut out the cards and laminated them so they seem more "game like" for my kiddos. They get a lot out of this practice!
Student Answer Sheets are provided
Teacher Answer Key is provided (students may also check their own work)
Suggestions for use:
Small Group Showdown
1. Question cards are stacked in center of the team table.
2. Teacher selects one student on each team to be the Showdown
Captain for the first round/card. The Showdown Captain draws the top card and reads the question.
3. Working solo, all students write their answers.
4. When finished, teammates signal they’re ready.
5. The Showdown captain calls “show down.”
6. Teammates show answers; Showdown Captain leads the check.
7. If correct, the team celebrates; if not, teammates reteach and then celebrate.
8. The person on left of the Showdown Captain becomes the new Showdown Captain for the next round.
Use as a quick draw one for you to ask individual students as they are waiting in line during transitions. I sometimes use these cards when there is a 5 minute open time during my day.
Students work with a partner.
Students turn over one card at a time and answer the question together, recording their answers on individual (or joint) answer sheets.
Teacher can use the answer sheet to analyze individual strengths and areas of concern.
Teacher can also use whole class sheets to identify trends within his/her classroom.
Teacher can make overhead copy/project on white board, and complete as a group.
