About this time of year, my students are getting really good with this routine and can apply many ways to show Today's Number on their own. It's so exciting and makes me such a proud math mama!
This handy dandy little card can be included in an interactive math notebook so that when your students are doing this math routine, they can easily reference the different ways they can show Today's Number. (There are two on a page so you can save a tree.) :)
If you need something to show parents or to take a grade on, here are a couple of options for something to use outside of a notebook:
|This one has two boxes labeled "equation" allowing students to use any operation.|
|This one has one box labeled "equation using addition" and one box labeled "equation using subtraction."|
