PRINTABLE STUDENT ANSWER DOCUMENTS FOR ACCOUNTABILITY
As we all know, some students need additional reminders regarding their accountability for work due when they are working in less structured environments such as centers or in small work groups. Printable answer documents provide a visible tool for reminding students of your expectations during a given work time as well as an organizational piece for keeping their work structured and readable. The student documents are in 2 formats:
*a generic student answer document that allows you to manually fill in the task card numbers a student should complete
* a numbered student answer document with labeled workspaces
Use these task cards as:
number work at centers
small group assignments
whole group lessons on white board
math journal work
meaningful engagement for early finishers
With all the interruptions in the regular school day such as school picture day, flu shot day, special assemblies and speakers, etc., these types of activities can keep the learning tempo up in a fun way. Happy Teaching!
