NEW!! A great set of Valentine's themed task cards that covers the 4.NF standards! This set of 32 task cards includes Common Core math practice for standards 4.NF.1, 4.NF.2, 4.NF.3, 4.NF.5, 4.NF.6, and 4.NF.7 (excludes 4.NF.4). They provide a fun practice activity for use with the whole class, cooperative groups or pairs, and math centers. Students will love these holiday-themed task cards with interesting Valentine's clip-art that keeps their interest.
These are ways I’ve used task cards other than centers that went really well:
-For morning work, place task cards upside down in a basket and have students pick one card from the basket to complete. (I’ve stood by the door with the basket and had them pick a card as they enter the classroom.)
-Randomly pass out task cards to students making sure the same card is given to at least two students (you’ll need to make two sets of the task cards). When students finish, they will pair up with other student(s) with same card and compare answers.
- Give students a sticky note and randomly pass out task cards. Have students put their name on back of the sticky and solve task on front. As students finish, have them stick their sticky on a designated board under the task card number they’ve solved (you’ll have prepared the location prior to assignment).
Answer Key and Student Recording sheet included.
