Are you finding that your students are having a difficult time figuring out what operation(s) to do during word problems? In this download there are a mixture of 24 task cards containing word problems with mixed operations as well as a mixture of single step and multi-step. (Most are multi-step problems and best for 5th grade but work great for higher 4th graders too). Students will also have to interpret remainders and need to know how to multiply and divide decimals (only to the hundredths place). All questions are open-ended.
All you need to do is print, preferably in color, cut, laminate and shuffle cards. Then the options are endless:
•Have your students complete the cards at a center and record their answers on the recording key provided. Or get up and move by placing them around the room and playing a game of SCOOT.
•Use as a ticket out the door, picking one out of the stack to complete as a quick check or spiral throughout the year.
•Assign a sheet for homework for the night.
•Even use as an assessment or intervention
•Great for fast finishers too!
This mixture of task cards is perfect for centers, independent practice, small group work, intervention or just as a spiral review game. Recording sheet for students provided as well as an answer key for teacher quick check or student self-check.
