These colorful pinch cards are an excellent way to increase student engagement and conduct quick student assessment of content knowledge!
One page creates two students pinch cards. Print enough so that you are able to have one card for each student, laminate and cut in half. The teacher presents a multiple choice question or word problem that students would respond to by holding up their cards and pinch the number/symbol that corresponds with the correct answer. This encourages all students to engage and allows teacher to check for comprehension.
But you need to take it a step further and follow up with questioning of why and having the students explain their thinking either to the whole group or partners.
These cards can be used effectively with grades K through 12!
