Thank you for purchasing the Fruit Stand Money Addition and Subtraction Task Cards. This set of task cards is a fun and engaging way to enforce that your students are proficient in identifying both sides of each coin, knowing each coin's value, and adding and subtracting various money amounts.
Included in this packet you will find:
- 24 task cards
- Answer sheet
- Answer key
- Scoot game instructions
Being able to correctly identify coins and their values, as well as add and subtract various amounts of money, is a life skill that your students will use forever. Whether buying lunch in the cafeteria or paying a bill later in life, the foundation your students build now is essential to their success.
To ensure understanding, I have presented the questions on the task cards in various formats. Students will do things such as decide if the money pictured is enough to make a purchase, add together items purchased, determine if the correct change was given, and compare two purchases to see which one is the largest or smallest. All of the cards feature a fruit stand theme. I've included the price list for a dozen fruits at the fruit stand and your students will utilize this list to complete the task cards.
My favorite way to implement task cards is to play Scoot. This game gets the students up and moving, which helps to break up the monotony of sitting at the same desk throughout the day. In case you aren't familiar with this game, I have included an instruction sheet. It can be used with any set of task cards you have!
This is also a great resource for homeschool students as well. I like to place the cards all around my home and my daughter will scoot to each one in a similar manner as in a classroom setting.
Of course, that isn't the only way these task cards can be used. They also work well in math centers, as a task for early finishers, and as extra engaging work for your eager learners.
For resources that are not consumable, such as the task cards, I do recommend printing on cardstock and laminating so that you can use them over and over again.
Thank you again for your purchase. I hope you enjoy the Fruit Stand Money Addition and Subtraction Task Cards as much as I do.
