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 second set of our new MATH READY 3rd Grade Task Cards: Numerical Representations & Relationships Basic Set 1 – Composing & Decomposing Numbers up to 100,000!! This MATH READY task card set focuses on the first TEKS Readiness Standard for 3rd Grade Math Numerical Representations & Relationships:
•Compose & decompose numbers up to 100,000 as a sum of so many ten thousands, so many thousands, so many hundreds, so many tens, and so many ones using objects, pictorial models, and numbers, including expanded notation as appropriate (3.2A).

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 place value to your students. These task cards assess your students’ comprehension of:
•Composing & decomposing numbers up to 100,000
•Expanded notation
•Number lines
•Pictorial models (dice, dominoes, place value blocks, place value disks, playing cards, spinners)
•Place value charts (thousands period & hundreds period)
•Standard form
•Word form
•Word problems

*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 place value all over the U.S.*

Standards Covered:
•TEKS: 3.2A
•CCSS: 3.NBT.A.3, 4.NBT.A.1

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! :)
