These third grade math task cards for decomposing and composing figures are perfect for the digital teacher!
I LOVE all things pretty, including task cards, math centers, and interactive notebooks for that matter. I have created all of the above and even purchased them as well. What I fail to do is print them as they were made and laminate them to keep from year to year. It’s a lot of work. I start, but end up getting behind and fail to complete my task at hand. My school district went 1:1 with technology last year, so I thought, why not create all these pretty math centers that don’t need printed, laminated, cut out, and stored. Make them digital!
How these are different than traditional task cards
Printable task cards are typically provided in a format that is paper saving friendly. There are 4 or more task cards per page, which limits the number of pages that need printed. This is good, but digital task cards are better! Digital task cards are different in the fact that there is only one task card per page. By having only one task card per page, students are able to swipe or scroll through one card at a time. What does this mean to you? You save money! No more needing to print on cardstock and in color . Also, you save time! No more cutting, laminating, and cutting again!
Please note: Even if you are 1:1 in the classroom, you CAN still make these work!!!! A blog post will be coming soon on just this!
How they Work
If you use Google classroom, you can assign and make a copy for each student to complete. If you don’t use Google Classroom and/or students don’t have their own Google account, no problem! The PDF version is perfect!
You can provide all task cards to students to complete in the order of their choice, or you can even create your own order. How? Here are some options:
►The slides are movable. You can order them in the order that you want students to complete them.
►Make multiple copies of the file, delete all the slides but the task cards that you want them to complete, and save it as a name of your choice. That way, students are only provided with the task cards that they must complete.
