## These computation centers contain task cards and work mats for free computation practice in your classroom.

This computation collection includes addition centers and subtraction centers that are colorful and more engaging for students than worksheets.

Simply print on card stock, laminate and grab some EXPO Dry Erase Markers and you’re all set!

Recently we were talking with a teacher about resources she needed for her classroom.

She shared that her principal was encouraging staff to go as paperless as possible. While the thought of that might sound daunting or near impossible, we all know that funds and supplies such as copy paper are often in short demand.

We need to think outside the box when we prepare lessons and centers and make sure that, as much as possible, we can reuse our materials again and again.

As a result of this conversation, we set out to create a collection to meet this need.

This collection of computation practice resources includes 4 colorful work mats and SEVEN sets of computation task cards.

The following skills are addressed:

- 2-Digit addition without regrouping
- 2-Digit addition with regrouping,
- 3-Digit addition with and without regrouping
- 3 number column addition
- 2-Digit subtraction without regrouping
- 2-Digit subtraction with regrouping
- 3-Digit subtraction with and without regrouping

The materials provided are easily set up as an addition center, a subtraction center or a mixed practice center.

Students draw a card, use their EXPO dry erase marker to solve the problem on the work mats and then record their answers on the recording sheet provided (if desired).

Another option is to use the cards, EXPO dry erase markers and work mats in a small guided math group.

Students each choose a different card and work their problems on the mats. You can instantly see the work and thinking of your students so you know what misunderstandings need addressed. Provide some immediate feedback and have them choose another card to check for understanding.

Trudy Bartels says

I am looking forward to using these great resources for math centers in the upcoming year! I am trying to go to more center based instruction and less whole group instruction.

BK says

My teachers are already planning their math centers for next year and these will be perfect.

Patricia Harris says

I will use the Expo markers with the computation practice in my math work stations. So excited to add new and interesting ideas to the stations.

Kristin says

I plan to use the Expo markers in two ways. One during Math centers with the computation practice. Another way I will use them is for informal assessment. I will project one of the computation cards, have the students solve and show their work and answer by holding up their laminated computation page.

Maria says

I plan to use the Expo markers & laminated math sets in my math centers & during whole group instruction .

Missy Mancz says

I am a RTI Interventions teacher for TIER III and IV, along with Special Ed. My students range from 4th-8th grade in a Title I school. These would be a wonderful addition to my classroom and for my students and by using the centers along with the EXPO markers it is a win win situation. My students love to use dry erase markers and this center laminated will be one that can be used over and over, for my future and present classes! So many ideas for these two!!

Emilie says

I love task cards and I would use them for fact practice during math rotations, or when we are working in a small group. They kids love to use expo markers and it make them so excited and focused when they get to use the markers.

Toiya Smith says

I plan to use the expo markers and the computation practice in my small guided math groups.I think that this a valuable resource that is already ready to go.I can just print, cut and laminate!😀

Julie says

I love the computation centers. They would be a great addition to my classroom. We use expos for so many things that I can never have too many. Thanks!!

Dorothy Russin says

This will be my first time teaching math again in 6 years. I am super excited to try these task cards in small group first then once I have used them in small group maybe use them as a rotation later for practice.

Christine says

These are great! I am a math intervention teacher and my kids will love working with these in our small groups. They absolutely love working with expos so it will really be helpful!

Theresa Simpson says

I love everything you both do!

Sherie says

I plan to use the math cards in my Math Center Buckets. My intervention buddy will also have easy access to ready math resources for math.

Olga says

I will use the math cards in my centers. Expo would be use there too and for ‘quick checks’ with whiteboards

Angela W says

I love using Expo Dry Erase markers. This set of math sheets would be an excellent addition to student practice either with a teacher or during their own time.

Tanya says

My students love being able to use Expo Markers during small group time and these computation cards will come in handy too!

muffy miller says

i’d put in tasks boxes for students with ID

Kim says

The math computation sheets are grateful for centers and I love the new expo marker with the ink indicator, they write very smoothly and with no odor. All my 1st grade students tried to use the only one I received for teacher appreciation week during math centers. This marker is very cool!

Meg says

💜 I see task cards all the time,but it is the really creative & colorful ones that get the kids excited about learning!

A full set of these new Expo Markers will not only make for a great start to the school year for Teacher – but (even better) make a unique & thoughtful Teacher gift on the first day of school. 💜 Meg ~

Anna says

I will use these for fact checks and small groups. I use expo markers in whole group and small group activities. I am always running out. This would be awesome. Thank you for sharing!

Eb says

Wonderful math center choice!

Nancy Shreve says

These computation task cards are perfect for my intervention classroom! Your activities are the fun, engaging, and motivational for my struggling students! I use dry erase markers almost exclusively with my students since we are limited on our use of paper and because the students love them! Thank you for supporting teachers and having such a wonderful website filled with research based activities so easy to access!

Shawna says

I would use them as part of our math workshop stations.

B. Finucane says

I will be using these resources for my early finishers bin during guided math

Elizabeth says

I would use the task cards/mats during our centers time. I would laminate the mats or pit them in page protectors so the students could use Expo dry erase markers to answer and reuse the mats!

Ebony Thomas says

I plan on using the expo markers in my chin it exercises that I use to check for understanding.

Tara A Binder says

I am switching grades and I can see these being used by my students as they take their after lunch restroom break to get their math brains warmed up for our math block.

Ravien Washington says

My students get very excited about learning when they are giving a chance to write with Expo Markers. So, I will definitely use the EXPO markers during whole group and small group instruction with students’ personal whiteboards. Also, it will give me an opportunity to use the Computations Centers for Math Practice Task cards as a way to accelerate a small group of my above average students in a fun and exciting way.

Holly says

Markers in fun colors are awesome! We would use them well in our math centers!

Sandra Zbylut says

I plan on using your computation math cards in a math station with a container of EXPO markers. The level indicators will help me swap them out before I hear no markers are working while I’m with a math group.

Deborah Sarvis says

EXPO’s Dry Erase Markers would work great in all my centers.

Tammy Vander Lugt says

I am teaching a mixed grade this year and this would be a great way to differentiate. I love the work mats and the paperless method using the Expo markers!

Shanelle says

These math center cards are perfect for 2nd grade standards!! And EXPO markers are always a hit with the kids. Excited about the indicator line!

Tammy says

I work in a Title 1 school with limited resources. That’s why I absolutely love the idea of using laminated task cards with Expo markers, and the new ink indicators are such a life saver!

Mrs. Alexis Barker says

This is perfect activity to do with a small group. They can have cards that reflect areas that each kid needs practice with.
