This resource is FORMATTED IN COLOR AND BLACK/WHITE TO MEET YOUR COPYING NEEDS!
This resource includes:
15 one-step word problem task cards
15 two-step word problem task cards (for a total of 45 computations altogether) using a playground/recess theme to help students practice the skill of solving one and two-step word problems systematically to acheive accuracy.
PRINTABLE STUDENT ANSWER DOCUMENT
Student answer documents provide an organizational piece as well as a visual tool to assist students who are often less productive in unstructured settings such as centers or collaborative groups.
Student answer documents are also very helpful when DIFFERENTIATED ASSIGNMENTS ARE NEEDED. By simply circling the problems you want a student to complete ahead of time, each student has a prescriptive assignment based on your knowledge of their math needs. This also helps eliminate interruptions for "forgotten" instructions.
Answer documents provide excellent authentic work samples for portfolios, parent/teacher conferences, referral conferences, etc.
2 formats are included- as task cards if student self checks are preferred or as traditional teacher friendly answer sheets for convenience when grading as a grade book assignment.
During the course of a day, these cards can be used as:
math center activities
enrichment for early finishers who need meaningful engagement while waiting for others to finish
number work for small collaborative groups
white board assignments for math journals
morning warm-ups as students enter the classroom to begin their day of learning
I've found that you can never have too many of these kinds of activities. They help revive the "dead" times that can occur when routines are disrupted by uncontrollable events such as school picture day, special speakers and assemblies, flu shots, etc.
