This resource includes:
**20 real world word problem task cards aligned with CCSS 5.NF.7c and are in both COLOR format for projecting on a whiteboard when using as a whole group activity AND BLACK & WHITE format for ease in printing when using a copier.
**Differentiation is addressed by the level of difficulty in word problem scenarios.
**A printable student answer document is provided-if needed- to assist with student accountability. As teachers we all know that some students are not as productive in less structured settings such as centers or small collaborative groups therefore a student answer document can provide them with a visual tool as a reminder of what they are responsible for accomplishing in a given amount of time. Student answer documents are also a convenient way of making differentiated assignments-- (for example- circling the specific task card numbers on the answer document that you want the student to complete)-- an easy way to save time when making those prescriptive assignments!
PORTFOLIO WORK DOCUMENTATION
Student answer documents are also excellent when used as authentic pieces of student work for math portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conference pieces, examples of work needed for placement conferences, etc.
**Answer Keys are provided in 2 formats.
These task cards are flexible resources and can be used in many ways such as:
*meaningful tasks for math centers
*assignments for small collaborative groups
*activities for differentiated assignments
*mini lessons or review materials when projected on white boards as whole class assignments
*warm-up assignments during transitions
*meaningful engagement and practice for early finishers
*math journal entries
You can never have too many of these kinds of resources to reinforce skills- especially on days when regular classroom routines are disrupted by activities such as school picture day, assemblies, etc.
