This St. Patrick Day Themed Freebie contains one set of 12 word problems involving math operations and one set of 24 mixed operation cards.
I use task cards in a few ways:
As a large group activity. I place the task cards around the room and have students walk around in pairs with a clipboard and answering sheet. I then project the answer sheet on to my whiteboard and have students record their answers on the whiteboard and we check their work.
As a center activity during math rotations. Pairs of students are given a set of task cards (I have 4 students in a group – so I would put thm in partners and give each group of 2 students a copy of the task cards). Students work together but each student records the answer on their own sheet.
As a quick assessment tool. I print the cards in b&w and 2 sheets per page. I give students a few cards to glue into their This St. Patrick Day Themed Freebie contains one set of 12 word problems involving math operations and one set of 24 mixed operation cards.notebooks and answer. I also use these as a ticket out the door.
I print the task cards on cardstock with color ink. Laminating the cards will of course improve their durability. When laminated students can record their answers on the task card if using it as a center – or you can laminate the recording sheet.
I also have a follow-up sheet – I use this sheet for early finishers. It asks students to prove their answer is correct. Students choose one answer and show how they know their answer is correct using pictures numbers and words. You may have to model your expectations for this page.
I also included 2 blank task card sheets – as a follow up you could have students create their own word problem task card.
