I am so excited to be using a couple of these products next year! I have been looking for some fun activities for one or two students at a time to work on while I am helping others. I need something they could grab quickly and practice until I get to them. These new products fit the bill perfectly!
So many of the things I find are too difficult for those with disabilities to use on their own, and when I try to move down a level they get very "little kid" fast! These are simple yet age appropriate and best of all they take almost no prep on my part! They have the standards written on them so all I have to do is find the one the coordinates with what we are learning and give it to them!
Here are the two products I got for my students.
I love these because while they are fun, they require the kids to "think"!! Each set includes 15 write-on/wipe-away mats with coordinating game cards. The cards and the mats are color coded for easy organization and cleanup.
The mats can be used individually or with partners and are open-ended to be used again and again. A 16-page resource guide with recording sheets is also included to allow students to explain their work in the context of the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.
I can't wait to use these with my students next year! They are perfect for review practice. I think my students will enjoy them and they will be so easy for me to align with lessons because they have the standards on them!

Most of you are probably familiar with task cards! These cards have a short activity on them that is done independently and many times recorded on a recording sheet. I love these because the students can write on them and erase when they are finished, and you have an option to go online and print recording sheets if you want them to turn their work in!!
The activities are great, I know my students are going to be challenged to think critically by these. They are going to make a great center option next year!!
The set contains 50 language arts cards and 50 math cards, each printed with a standard on one side for easy planning and progress tracking. A free online resource guide provides a standards matrix, recording sheets, and an answer key.
