This resource includes:
**25 multi-step task card word problems aligned with CCSS 5.NBT.7.
This resource is formatted in:
FULL SIZE SLIDES FOR PROJECTING ON A WHITEBOARD AS A WHOLE GROUP LESSON
PRINTABLE BLACK AND WHITE TASK CARDS/ANSWER KEYS IN MINI FORMAT FOR ECONOMICAL PRINTING
**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 collaborative learning groups, they are often distracted from the task at hand. Student answer documents provide a visual piece to remind students they are accountable for number work at the end of the work period. They are also excellent tools for evaluating a student's mastery ( or lack of mastery) of a given skill as you observe them work independently from the whiteboard.
DOCUMENTATION/AUTHENTIC WORK SAMPLES
Student answer documents are also excellent for use as documentation for samples of student work when some type of evidence is required for such things as math portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conferences, special education placement conferences, re-evaluations, 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 card word problems by simply 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) 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.
