This set of 32 task cards supports the Common Core and other rigorous state standards and allows for teachers to “spiral” their instruction to make sure students keep fresh with all the ideas in the curriculum. So often we teach a unit (for example, a 3 week geometry unit) and then we don’t revisit the skills and concepts and students lose those neural connections! These task cards can help—each set addresses a full fourth grade curriculum and each set gets progressively more rigorous. Set one takes fourth grade standards and provides practice at a most basic, foundational level. As the sets progress, the skills are presented in different formats and with different levels of sophistication. Different sets are colored differently and labeled to make organization a snap! Many cards have a “challenge” piece to help with differentiation opportunities.
Pages can be printed, cut into quadrants, and laminated to use as task cards (color version) or can be copied and cut apart to use in math journals or as practice sheets. Pages are included in color AND with white background for easy copying. There is also a blank set of cards where students (or you) can write their own task cards and all answers are included. Finally, blank “recording sheets” are included if you wish to have your students record their work in one organized place. Consider using as centers, as warm ups, as homework, or even as formative assessment tools to see how students are doing. Watch for more sets and bundles to keep the spiral working all year!
All sets in this series address all the standards found in the Common Core and other typically used math curricula. You will find…
Computation problems in all four operations
Algebra thinking and patterning problems
Measurement (metric and customary)
Geometry (and angles)
Fractions (high emphasis here)
Place value, estimating, and rounding
Factors and multiples
Area and perimeter
To keep each set a manageable size, different sets will “weigh” standards a little differently. For example, the first set has less emphasis on the more rigorous standards that are typically taught later in the year and focuses more on foundations that support later sets. Watch for more sets and grade levels!
