Nothing fancy, just great, quick, and effective practice!
I Love Quiz, Quiz, Trade (and so do my students)!
(More skill sets are available in my store)
This is a set of 36 cards that can be used for Quiz, Quiz, Trade. I have several sets on hand, laminated, cut, and hanging by binder clips on a row of nails in my classroom for easy access and a quick and efficient review/support. Simply print the cards double sided and you are ready to go with questions on one side and the answers on the other!
I often begin each math class with a quick 3-4 minute review of past skills. It keeps them sharp and gets them ready for mathematical thinking!
For these cards, students solve mental math problems such as 4,000 x 300 to give the answer of 1,200,000.
Common Core Standard
CCSS.Math.Content.5.NBT.A.2 Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
How to Play: If you aren't familiar with Kagan strategies, this game is a great one to get your students moving and energized about math!
Pass out cards, one to each student. When you say "quiz, quiz, trade, they put a hand up, look for a partner, high 5, and then quiz each other using their card. After both have answered their partner's question (giving their partner help if needed and praising their partner for the correct answer) they trade cards, put a hand up, and find another partner. The came keeps going... hand up, high 5 a new partner, quiz each other, trade, hand up, etc.
This game is great when you've moved on to new topics and you don't want them forgetting what you've already taught. It also improves their mental math (fast fact) abilities and number sense.
I use the same game for math facts, spelling practice, vocabulary, comprehension... the kids love it and as a teacher, it's great to watch them help their classmates!
