MAKE THOSE STUDENTS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR WORK TIME!
**A printable student answer document is provided to assist with student accountability. As you are well aware, when some students are working in less structured environments such as centers or small collaborative learning groups, they are often distracted from the task at hand. Student answer documents provide a visual piece to remind students they are accountable for number work at the end of the work period.
ASSISTANCE WITH STUDENT PROGRESS DOCUMENTATION & AUTHENTIC STUDENT WORK SAMPLES
Student answer documents are also excellent pieces of documentation when pieces of authentic work samples are required for students’ math portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conferences, special education placement conferences, re-evaluations, etc.
** Student answer documents are also convenient tools when making differentiated assignments- you can easily assign specific task cards by circling or highlighting the desired workspaces of the particular math problems assigned to each student.
**Answer Keys are provided in 2 formats:
1. as individual task cards -if student self-checking is preferred
2. OR in a traditional answer key that is teacher friendly when grading task card number work as graded assignments.
These task cards are flexible resources and can be used in many ways such as:
*number work for math centers
*number work for small collaborative groups
*whiteboard work for whole class assignments
*whiteboard work during transitions
*meaningful engagement and practice for early finishers
*as assessment/benchmark check-ups
* for math journal work
You can never have too many of these kinds of resources to reinforce skills- especially on days when regular classroom routines are disrupted by activities such as school picture day, assemblies, etc.
