Customers who used our 3rd grade STAAR WARS Math Task Cards loved them, and many teachers emailed us asking us for more. So we listened! But instead of creating more STAAR review sets, we thought it would be even better to have task card sets that could be used WHILE you’re teaching, instead of just to review afterward. This way you can measure learning as you go. So, we decided to create task card sets for every TEKS Readiness Standard for reading, math, and writing. We will have 2 sets available for each TEKS Readiness Standard, a basic set and an advanced set, which allows the teacher to assess learning at various learning stages, making them perfect for differentiation.
We’re happy to introduce the first set of our new MATH READY 3rd Grade Task Cards: Data Analysis & Personal Financial Literacy Basic Set 1 – Financial Literacy!! This MATH READY task card set focuses on the seven TEKS Supporting Standards for 3rd Grade Math Data Analysis & Personal Financial Literacy:
•explain the connection between human capital/labor and income (3.9A)
•describe the relationship between the availability or scarcity of resources and how that impacts cost (3.9B)
•identify the costs and benefits of planned and unplanned spending decisions (3.9C)
•explain that credit is used when wants or needs exceed the ability to pay and that it is the borrower’s responsibility to pay it back to the lender, usually with interest (3.9D)
•list reasons to save and explain the benefit of a savings plan, including for college (3.9E)
•identify decisions involving income, spending, saving credit and charitable givings (3.9F)
This BASIC set includes 24 task cards that feature shorter, simpler questions with multiple choice answers, making them perfect to use when you’re first teaching financial literacy to your students. These task cards assess your students’ comprehension of:
•Availability & scarcity of resources
•Costs of production
•Credit & interest
•Making connections between human capital/labor and income
•Planned & unplanned spending decisions
•Saving & making a savings plan
*Though our MATH READY Task Cards are made with our Texas teacher friends in mind, they are also aligned with 3rd grade CCSS, making them easily usable by any 3rd grade teacher teaching financial literacy all over the U.S.*
•TEKS: 3.9A, 3.9B, 3.9C, 3.9D, 3.9E, 3.9F
•CCSS: Aligned with the National Standards for Financial Literacy (CEE.4.2.1, CEE.4.2.2, CEE.4.2.3, CEE.4.2.5, CEE.4.2.6, CEE.4.3.2, CEE.4.3.5, CEE.4.4.1, CEE.4.4.2, CEE.4.4.3, CEE.4.4.4, CEE.8.1.3, CEE.8.1.5, CEE.12.2.6)
Instructions are included for 3 methods of review: task cards review in centers/groups/pairs/individuals, a SCOOT game, and a "Be the Teacher" game, but these cards can be used in a variety of other ways to meet your needs.
We hope you enjoy them, and we’d love to hear your feedback! :)
