My students have ALWAYS struggled to memorize common conversions prior to our state test. However, I have found that time, flash cards, and increased daily challenges have helped my students quickly memorize their conversions!
Gist: Use this product to help your students memorize 24 common customary and metric conversions. For five days, students will complete the conversion charts. (I time them to keep them accountable- five minutes!) The number of blanks/conversions to know each day will increase in number to keep students accountable. Students can record the number of conversions they get correct and write down the ones missed to review. Use the flashcards provided to help students memorize conversions at home. A key is provided for quick access.
Number of conversions to know each day:
Day 1: 10 blanks out of 24
Day 2: 13 blanks out of 24
Day 3: 16 blanks out of 24
Day 4: 20 blanks out of 24
Day 5: 24 blanks out of 24
