My students struggle with word problems. So, at the end of every unit I have my students work in groups using 3-4 task cards. Its great because I can quickly differentiate without having to worry about creating leveled worksheets or making copies. Thank goodness!
I also use my task cards for a game of SCOOT. If you are not familiar with the SCOOT game, I essentially place one card on each students desk and give them 2-3 minutes to solve it. When time is up they SCOOT to the next seat to solve a new problem. The cards never move... just the students. My students love playing this game as it gives them an excuse to get out of their seat.
