Looking for a way to have your students practice their even and odd skills? These Even and Odd Minute To Pin It Cards are the perfect addition to your math tool box! The posters can be put up in the room to help students remember what they have learned.
There are 8 different cards: Even 2-digit, 3-digit, 4-digit, and addition cards, and Odd 2-digit, 3-digit, 4-digit and addition cards. They are all shown in the preview!
**These cards and posters are not meant to be teaching products, but to help reinforce what your students have already learned.
Students will place a clothespin (or paperclip) on each square that matches what is stated on the card. Each card has 10 correct answers. The student then turns the card over to check their answers. Use them in the way that fits best into your classroom:
PLAY ALONE - differentiate by setting different amounts of time, or no timer at all. My students LOVE to try to beat their personal best time!
PLAY WITH A PARTNER - one student holds the card, the other places the pins. Then they switch. No timers? Have one student watch the clock. Having trouble? Have the other student explain in their own words.
PLAY AT A MATH STATION - every teacher needs a math station that runs itself! One student can set the timer and all students pin their cards. Beware, this can be a noisy station - because they're having fun while they practice! (We have been learning to "whisper cheer"!)
My third graders have been using these cards for several months now. I keep them in a bin with clothespins and Dollar Tree timers, and we use them for fast finishers, as a reward, at stations, for homework, and even as a quick assessment. (No clothespins? Use paper clips instead.)
**These are not a no prep item! Please see the preview for directions. They must be printed, cut, folded, glued, and laminated. It's worth it, I promise =) They should last for years!
I hope these Even and Odd Minute To Pin It Cards are something that you can use in your classroom.
