This resource includes is provided in COLOR and BLACK & WHITE FORMAT for convenience based on your copying preferences. AS A BONUS OPTION, A MINI FORMAT IS ALSO INCLUDED FOR ECONOMICAL PRINTING IF PAPER IS AN ISSUE!
The resource includes:
** 20 task card word problems aligned with CCSS 3.NBT.2, however this resource presents the skill with a “twist”—Students read the equation, transfer the number from its written form into the standard form and then solve. Next students transfer their answer from standard form into written form and match it to an answer card.
As an additional component for checking answers, students cut and paste the matching answer card symbol onto their answer document by following the directions given.
**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.
DOCUMENTATION/AUTHENTIC WORK SAMPLES
Student answer documents are also excellent for using as documentation as well as work samples of authentic pieces of student work when some type of substantiation is required for math portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conferences, special education placement conferences, etc.
**Differentiated assignments can be a snap using the printable answer documents- simply circle the numbers of the task cards that the student is to complete and save yourself a lot of time and inconvenience.
**Answer Keys are provided in task card format as well as a teacher friendly format.
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
* as math journal entries
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.
