Math Task Cards

I hope you had a fabulous weekend! It was quite busy!!! The weather was perfect yesterday so we took our little one (13 months) to pick out a pumpkin! Well... it was more like me taking lots of pictures while I sat her in the pumpkin patch or on top of pumpkins, but it was so fun!  And, we did come home with a pumpkin!

I just love Fall!  It's my 2nd favorite season after the summer of course! The trees are just so pretty with all of the different colored leaves! Plus, this weekend I also bought my daughter's Halloween costume! Squeak, squeak, yes she's going to be a little mouse! Eek!!!  It just looked so warm and cozy.  I can't wait to dress her up with all of her little friends!  

Soooo...after our fun day, it was time to get down to business. I'm excited to say that my new math task cards are complete! Yes, 124 of them with answer keys!!! 

Here are the topics covered:

Numbers & Operations (20 task cards) 
-Place Value (Tens & Ones)
-Addition/Subtraction
-Ordering and Comparing Numbers
-Solving Addition/Subtraction Word Problems
-Missing Addends
-Fact Families

Patterns (20 task cards) 
-Counting Up & Back
-Before & After
-Skip Counting by 2s, 5s, 10s
-Shape/Letter Patterns

Money (24 task cards) 
-Counting Coins (P,N,D,Q)
-Word Problems

Measurement & Data (20 task cards) 
-Telling Time to the Hour & Half-Hour
-Word Problems
-Comparing Times
-Reading Bar Graphs
-Comparing Lengths

Geometry (20 task cards) 
-Counting Number of Sides
-2-D & 3-D Shapes
-True/False
-Fractions 1/2, 1/4

Challenge Problems (20 task cards) 
-Time
-Money
-Word Problems
-Place Value
-Addition/Subtraction

You just have to print, cut, and laminate and they will be ready for many years to come! I know 124 is a lot to think about cutting out, but you could always just start out with one or two sets and do the other ones at another time!  Also, included is a color version and a black and white version in case you want to save on ink! 

I love these task cards because they are great for extra practice and review of math skills. You can use them during math centers, independent work time, RTI, and/or for your fast finishers. 

When creating this pack I had first grade in mind along with the Common Core Standards. However, these task cards would be great to challenge Kindergarten students and they are a good review for second grade. 
My students really love doing these.  Especially my fast finishers, they love to go over and grab a few cards to complete!  And of course they are loving the challenge cards!


I have included a variety of recording sheets.  The first one has individual blank cards where the students fill in the task card number and then answer the problem.  See below!

The next one is a recording sheet for all of the task cards in a specific set.  For example, if you want students to do all 24 money task cards then this recording sheet might be easier to use.  Again, there are options so it's what works best for you! 

I have included a free sampler for you, so you can learn more about my math task cards.  Just click on the link here or on the picture below to grab a copy.  You will find 4 Numbers & Operations cards, 4 Pattern cards, and 4 Measurement & Data cards.  A recording sheet is included too so students can record their answers for these 12 cards.  I hope you enjoy!!!


Happy Monday!!!
