How do you use these in your classroom?
These task cards are a great hands on center for your students to complete either independently or with a partner. When students are moving through math centers, I like to assign these task cards for students to complete. You can also use these in small groups as you guide them through the activity and re-teach as needed.
What is included in this unit?
There are six different task card centers included in this unit (with 20+ cards each):
- True or False: here students will use the 10 frames to add the addition equations and see if the sum given is true or false. They will circle the thumbs up for true or the thumbs down for false after adding. Students can use an expo marker to fill in the ten frames as they add the two parts to find the sum.
- Build and Add: here students will use unifix cubes to build and represent each number in the equation. After building each number in the equation, they would find the sum and write it in the box using an expo marker.
- Add and Clip: here students will look at the number in the middle of the grid. Next, they will go around the grid and read and solve the equations. Students will then clip all of the equations that have the target sum.
- Ducks in a Pond: here students will count how many ducks are in each pond and write that amount in the box below to build the addition equation. Next, students will add the numbers together to determine the sum, or how many ducks there are in all.
- Add and Clip 2: here students will add the addition equation to find the sum and then clip the number that is the correct sum.
- Making 10: here students will decompose the second addend into two parts to make 10 with the first addend. They will fill in the 10-frames to show the 10 plus the other number and fill in the answer.
Please note: these cards should be laminated so they can be used with dry-erase markers over and over again.
