Today I went to a great training on math strategies. The presenter got me thinking about the important things we can learn from sort and match activities. I know a lot of people are moving away from them, but I think they are a great lead-in or follow-up to a lesson. They give students a safe way to explore and learn but can provide valuable information if the teacher is really engaged in questioning strategies.
Today's freebie is a place value match and sort with 2 sets of cards…basic (orange) and advanced (blue). Each set has 32 total cards that can be sorted into 8 groups that allow students to think about numbers in different ways. Take a peek, and if you like what you see you can get it by clicking here!
