72 Question Cards with 2 questions per card (144 questions!)
A kid-friendly self-assessment checklist.
Open-ended math questions promote critical thinking, flexibility, perseverance and creative problem solving. Students have multiple ways to respond, so you can reach students with varied learning styles. These cards require students to choose which prompt they will respond to which boosts engagement and offers an additional layer of differentiation.
Suggestions for Use:
Print on card stock, cut and laminate.
Use whole class as a warm up or to introduce a lesson, in small groups to reteach or enrich, in partnerships to promote math talk, for fast finishers, or as a math center.
Students can write their responses on paper, in math journals, on dry erase boards or work mats. I have also had students work in partnerships and quads and share their responses verbally using the “Think, Pair, Share” discussion strategy.
