Great introduction activity for the first few days of school!
This is an interactive and hands-on way to open new learning opportunities to discuss the big ideas (Tools to Know and Ways to Show) that grades K-5 Math Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills are formulated around.
*Prep* Teachers must first print and cut these pieces out. (You can organize by color as well!)
Step 1: Have students highlight or underline the verbs in each Process Skill.
Step 2: Encourage students to put them in order based on the MOST DIFFICULT verbs FIRST.
This can be applied for students individually, in pairs, in small groups, or as a whole class and can be used as either Math Centers or for Interactive notebooks.
If there are a lot of interest in this, I will add the Knowledge and Skills Statements as well!
