This set of FREE Winter Holiday Math Word Problem Task Cards includes ten cards for Christmas, five for Hanukkah, and five for Kwanzaa. The cards are focused on cultural traditions and so will work fine in a public school setting. Most of the cards require two or more steps to solve. All four operations are used and the cards include money, elapsed time, and measurement.
Printing and Cutting:
These cards were made to be printed in color, but will print out fine in gray scale too. They should print out with even margins around the cards; however, because every printer is different, it is possible that you may need to adjust your printer settings. Selecting “actual size” or adjusting the size percentage should do the trick. Cut the cards apart using the dotted guidelines (discarding the bottom strip). Laminate if possible. Another option is to print on cardstock.
Several Common Core Standards that deal with basic computation are addressed in these cards, but the product is most aligned with this standard:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.A.3 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
There is also a digital version using TpT's new digital tool. After purchase, click the white “Open in Easel" button on this page. This will give you access to a digital overlay where students can select their answers. You can edit the digital overlay or use it as is. You can even assign it in Google Classroom!
