- Two levels are in one document! Level A covers the specific grade level standard. Level B covers the same topic with greater complexity and covers skills taught at a higher grade level that extend the topic further.
- It is great preparation for COGAT, AIMS, NWEA, and other school assessments. This provides the exposure to higher grade level topics plus math complexity that is often required on these tests to receive a higher score.
- The cards take the guesswork out of differentiation. Often, it can be challenging and time consuming to find ways to extended a math lesson for higher-ability students. (Literacy and Math Ideas' background includes elementary and college math extending up to Calculus 3, Discrete Mathematics, Trigonometry, etc. We actually enjoy finding the connections between elementary math and higher level algebra and geometry concepts.)
- Two levels are in one document! Level A covers the specific grade level standard. Level B is written at a greater complexity level. This is to help teach the same skill but at the appropriate readability level.
- Convenient resource to teach the same Common Core standard for different ability levels in one location. Great time saver.
- It also takes the guesswork out of differentiation. Students cover the appropriate skill that they need but in a way that meets their own individual reading needs.
