MONSTERS AREN'T JUST FOR HALLOWEEN!
THIS RESOURCE IS FORMATTED IN COLOR AND BLACK & WHITE TO BETTER ACCOMMODATE YOUR PRINTING PREFERENCES!
AS A BONUS I HAVE ALSO INCLUDED TASK CARDS/ANSWER KEYS IN A MINI FORMAT FOR ECONOMICAL PRINTING IF PAPER IS AN ISSUE.
Here are 50 cute and cheerful task cards using lovable monsters with a back to school theme for solving different types of addition word problems as described in the Common Core Standards for math-- 10 task cards are provided for EACH type of addition word problem below:

A formatted student answer document is also included to:
**provide a tool to assist in student accountability--as we all know some students need a visual piece to keep them focused and on target as a reminder of what you expect them to accomplish by the end of the work period
**provide an organized document that is "teacher friendly"
when grading or assessing student work
**provide authentic pieces of student work for portfolios, benchmark assessment proofs, parent/teacher conferences, etc.
I have also included answer keys in 2 formats:
**as a matching task card -if student self checking is preferred
**a one-page key using the same format as the student's
answer document (easy to follow 1-to-1 correspondence)
This resource can also easily be used as an assessment tool for report card benchmarks.
This resource can easily be used as a math center activity, a whiteboard activity, a transition activity, an extension activity for early finishers, or as work for a small collaborative math activity.
Based on the number of unexpected/uncontrollable "interruptions" during the school day (pictures, flu shots, guest speakers, etc.) you can never have too many of these kinds of activities to keep your students engaged and eager to return to the learning!
