Included in this resource:
24 task cards IN FULL SIZE COLOR for showing on a white board and printable BLACK AND WHITE FORMAT for convenience in printing from a copier.
All problems aligned with Common Core 5.NF.2 for practicing real world word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions.
A student answer document is included to assist in student accountability, especially helpful when students are working in less structured settings such as math centers or small work groups. The answer document also provides a model of organization for students who need that visual component to work efficiently.
Answer keys are provided in task card format.
*Task Cards offer a great amount of flexibility and variation as you incorporate them into your classroom. They were well:
in math centers
on whiteboards as whole group activities
as transition activities
for math journal entries
as independent assignments
meaningful engagement for early finishers
evidence of mastery for portfolio pieces
report card benchmarks
visuals for parent/teacher conferences
I have found that you can never have too many of these kinds of activities for your students. You may use them at a math center this year, but choose to use them as assessment pieces next year--a great teachng tool to have!
