This dog themed printable resource is in BOTH COLOR --for better viewing when projecting on a white board-- AND BLACK & WHITE-- making it copier friendly!
This fun resource has 3 leveled activities to provide differentiated practice as they work toward mastery and competency in determining whether a number is odd or even.
Activity 1 (Basic Level): Students read information on the pet card, and then they sort the pet cards onto odd and even mats according to the number of bones each dog has. When sorting is complete, students will record their answers onto a printable student answer document.
Activity 2 (Proficient Level): Using the same pet cards, students turn all cards face down. The student will select 2 pet cards, form an addition equation to combine the bones of the two pets selected, add, and then determine if the number of bones is odd or even. Students will record addition equations and answers on a printable student answer document.
Activity 3 (Proficient/Advanced Level): Students solve equations and determine if the answer is odd or even- a student answer document is provided for recording answers.
Included in this resource:
40 pet cards
2 sorting mats
120 bones with equations for solving
Printable student directions
Printable student answer documents for accountability
Printable answer keys
To assist with student accountability, a printable student answer document is included for each activity- as we all know some students are not as productive in less structured settings, so printable answer documents provide a visual tool to remind students about the work they are expected to complete during a given amount of work time.
Student answer documents also provide ease when making differentiated assignments- by simply circling the numbered workspaces a student is to complete, you will eliminate any misunderstandings about assigned work!
Student answer documents are also excellent pieces of authentic work required for student portfolios, IEP, AIP documentation of differentiation as well as work examples for referral conferences, re-evaluations of placements, parent/teacher conferences, etc.
Use these task cards at math centers, as math journal practice, during transitions, for early finishers, as test review, as assessment pieces, etc. The possibilities are numerous!
YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY OF THESE KINDS OF RESOURCES FOR RESTLESS STUDENTS! Happy Teaching!
