Product Description
Addition and subtraction with regrouping are two critical math skills that all elementary students must learn. One thing that we often forget is that students need to experience math instruction—even computation in different ways. So often we ask them to “fill in the blank” instead of really thinking and tapping into that number sense we know they need.

This set of task cards asks students to work with addition and subtraction under 1,000—but THEY need to come up with the problem! Each card gives them an answer…and a “rule” they need to follow. The possibilities are endless in some cases and limited in others, but because these are open-ended, there is no answer key, I’m afraid! Students can check their work on a calculator, have a buddy check it, or you can get creative!

I also wanted something that could be printed in color for task cards...printed in gray-scale for those of us without color printing options--and in a digital version to use if you are a classroom taking advantage of Google options!

What is Included?

24 task cards. The first 12 are at an easier level (in this set, numbers under 100) while the second 12 are more challenging (numbers under 1,000). You will notice the paper clip color changes from green to pink when the level changes.

►Task cards in both full color AND gray tones for black and white printing.

►Suggestions for use.

►CCSS alignment page

►Paper recording sheet if used in math stations or centers

►Digital version for use with Google!

Suggestions for use:

Use as a full class warm up. Project a card on the screen or give each student a copy to glue into their notebooks. Have them work independently, then “buddy up”, then share out full class! Consider making a chart of the different solutions they find.
✔ Use as a challenge activity for fast finishers.
✔ Use as a station in math workshop AFTER students are fluent with addition and subtraction strategies.
✔ Use as a replacement for some of the paper and pencil pages that are traditionally associated with computation.

Have fun with them and get creative!
