Product Description
Key words are an important concept for you to teach and for students to learn! Let them practice with this fun and engaging game that will make the skill of practicing them something students WANT to do! Works great for math centers, small group or early finishers. Students will be begging to practice prefixes and suffixes with this activity! I’ve had many students ask to play at recess and even lunch! This is only part of my word problem solving strategy. I find it helpful, especially for struggling students, so that they at least have a starting point when they encounter a word problem.

***What do you get?***

U-Know Cards 56 cards with key words on them and students have to give the operation they think they will use to solve a problem with that key word. Some key words have more than one answer.

What is U-Know?
U-Know is a fun and engaging card game where students practice topics in a repetitive way. I also use U-Know in stations or for early finishers throughout the year to spiral concepts for students. U-Know comes in MANY topics! So, once students learn the game, it will become a self-run station!

U-Know is played with students matching color/number to the card the previous player put down. Once they put their card down, they must read and answer. If correct, play moves on. If incorrect, player draws 2 new cards and play moves on. Students check answers with the included answer key.

This game can also be found in the following BUNDLES:
Math U-Know Game Bundle 2
Math U-Know Game Mega Bundle
Math & ELA U-Know MEGA Bundle 2

So please double check what's included if you've purchased any of those.
