Goofus is back with a more What Went Wrong activities. Goofus makes careless mistakes, and your students get to analyze and evaluate his work to find his mistakes. Then, after finding the mistakes, students must show Goofus the correct solution to each problem. I usually have my students explain in words what went wrong as well. One column shows Goofus' work and a second column is a blank space your students to provide the correct solution. I encourage students to highlight or circle where Goofus' mistake is if it can be noted in the work. There are fourteen activity sheets (2 for each of the NBT standards). Each sheet has 3 problems.
4.NBT.1 Place Value
4.NBT.2 Expanded, word, and number form
4.NBT.5 Multiplication (4-Digit x 1-Digit and 2-Digit x 2-Digit)
4.NBT.6 Division (4-Digit Dividend and 1-Digit Divisor)
These are great for classwork, independent work, centers, homework, exit-tickets, or morning work.
