As a teacher, I do not want to "teach to the test," but I find that it is sometimes the vocabulary, wording, and/or format of the questions that trip up my third graders (it's their first time taking the test). These task cards are a fun way to help them practice the types of math questions they will find on the testing.
This set is perfect to practice questions that are similar to those found on the Smarter Balanced/ PARCC Math test. This is a fun way to easily practice the format of the testing. These task cards are Common Core aligned using the same vocabulary and phrasing!
There are so many ways to use task cards in your classroom and they can be used year-to-year.
Practice Task Card Set includes:
• 42 Task Cards

I like to print the cards on cardstock or oak tag and then cut and laminate them. This helps with being able to use them year after year. I use these as a whole class “Scoot” type activity. I also love to pull a few to have students work on individually or in a small group. These are also great for math center time. Sometimes I also like to pull a handful for my fast finishers. The challenge cards are 2 digit by 1 digit multiplication and perfect to expose students to the next level.
