TO HELP YOU WITH THE ISSUE OF STUDENT ACCOUNTABILITY/ORGANIZATION COMPONENT:
A student answer document is included to assist in student accountability, especially helpful when students are working in less structured settings such as math centers or small work groups. The answer document also provides a model of organization for students who need that visual component to help them work more efficiently.
Answer keys are provided in task card format and in printable sheets for use when grading as assignments.
*Task Cards offer a great amount of flexibility and variation as you incorporate them into your classroom. They work well:
in math centers
on whiteboards as whole group activities
as transition activities
as math journal entries
as independent assignments
as meaningful engagement for early finishers
as evidence of mastery for portfolio pieces
as report card benchmark documentation
as visuals for parent/teacher conferences
I have found that you can never have too many of these kinds of activities for your students. You may choose to use them at a math center this year, but next year you may want to incorporate them in a math center. You can NEVER have too many of these kinds of activities to keep your students moving forward and actively engaged in the learning! Happy Teaching!
