This file contains 24 number sense task cards. Choose to print them in color or in black and white. They are formatted so they can be printed and cut in fourths with no extra trimming. These were designed for use with 3rd Grade Common Core Standards but can be by for anyone who teaches area.

Task Cards for Early Finishers or Center Activities
Have students record their answers on the provided page (or just have students number a blank page from 1-24). Students answer the question on each card on their paper. An answer key is available.

To play Scoot, you place a card on each child’s desk. Each child should answer their card on the correct location on their recording sheet. Make sure students look at the card number to see where to begin on their recording sheet. Then when you give a signal all students move to the next desk and record the next answer. Check answers at the end as a class.

I have over 15 years experience working with elementary aged students. My specialty is making math products.

I believe:

  • Math can and should be fun.
  • Learners need lots and lots of practice with manipulatives and hands-on strategies before they can solve abstract problems.
  • We need to let children explore concepts and not force them to memorize formulas to solve problems.
