These task cards were designed to use in my own classroom as a targeted review of third-grade TEKS in preparation for the STAAR test. 26 task cards are included for practice with the TEKS 3.2A: compose and decompose numbers up to 100,000 as a sum of so many ten thousands, so many thousands, so many hundreds, so many tens, and so many ones, using objects, pictorial models, and numbers, including expanded notation as appropriate. A specially-made recording sheet and key are included.
These are rigorous task cards, written with the process as well as the content standards in mind. I studied STAAR items and TEA supporting documents carefully to assure that I am adequate in preparing my students thoroughly for this standard. Task cards include varied models, and answer choice types to include both multiple choice and open-ended question. I have included both large and small versions of the cards to allow for flexible use in the classroom as a small group rotation, a gallery walk, or even as a set that students can access if they are working on individual learning goals. I hope they are an excellent resource for your test prep or year-round use!
