I began creating the Less Paper Classroom product line after seeing a need for a true digital product I could use in my own classroom. I believe being completely paperless is an unfair expectation for any classroom, I do believe, however, that using less paper can be achieved, and this product is designed to allow the teacher to do just that.
This product includes 25 full page PDF solve cards. Each solve card features either an addition or subtraction equation. Students are asked to solve the equation and record their answers on the recording sheet provided. Some addition and subtraction equations contain digits up to the hundred thousands place others have digits in lesser place values.
In addition, each solve card is followed by a full page PDF check card. Each check card features a large QR code, which should be able to be scanned from anywhere in the room if projected on a classroom display screen. Once scanned, the QR code reveals the correct answer.
Also included is a traditional recording sheet and a traditional answer key.
One huge benefit of a less paper product, is that after downloading the classroom teacher has literally no prep at all. How cool is that?
The zip file contains several different file formats. Choose the one that best suits the many ways you plan to use them: Both Solve and Check Cards, Solve Cards Only, Check Cards Only. I have also included a page describing several ways I have used these cards in my room.
While this product was designed to be used on a tablet, iPad or projected on a classroom display like a mimeo or a smart board, you could certainly print it out and use it in a more traditional way if you like.
