I have found incorporating a math workshop environment to be extremely successful. Students are happy and engaged in math activities, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with guided math groups without unnecessary interruptions. The key is that student expectations are communicated and materials are easily accessible. Getting activities for workshop organized in advance, saves me the headache of unnecessary copies and unfinished activities.
This package includes 4 addition and subtraction activities to implement in math centers, in guided math, or even as part of you whole group instruction. I implement these activities as “Partner Math,” where students pull fact practice activities to practice with a partner. This product is a great alternative to flash cards! You will also find 5 different directions cards. You may choose to place sets of the task cards on a ring with one direction card, or all five direction cards. I believe including all 5 direction cards on the ring with the task cards will give students more options when they pull these activities to practice. Recording sheets and answer keys are also included. Because these activities are in black and white, laminating is not necessary. Just print, cut, and place at a math station.
Thanks for viewing!
