Task Card Fun In the Sun

Hi! I'm Amber from Adventures of a Third Grade Teacher  I'm so excited to be a part of this new collaborative blog!  I think this will be a great place to learn more about CCSS products and ideas to use in the classroom.

I'm a third grade teacher in North Carolina. This is our first year implementing Common Core in NC and so far I love it!  I really enjoy the new math standards.  With the old NC Standard Course of study we had to cover so much, I never had enough time to teach everything well.  Now, we can spend so much time on solving problems, that students really get a great foundation of number sense.  

One way that I like to practice word problems in my class is through task cards.  Task cards are great because you can use them to play games such as Scoot, small group work or even early finisher work!  I have lots of task cards at my store. You can click here to check them out. 

If you haven't tried using task cards before, I have a freebie for you!  It's getting awfully warm here in NC, so these have a fun summer & beach theme!  They align to Third & Fourth Grade CCSS, but they would be great review for 5th graders. Click on the picture below to download them!
