## Unlock the Magic of Numbers with our Expanding Numbers Task Cards!

These expanding numbers task cards have been designed by a teacher to empower students, from the youngest learners to the more advanced, in mastering the art of expanding numbers up to 6 digits. With this innovative tool, we make the journey of understanding numbers fun and essential for your student’s overall development.

These expanding numbers task cards will assist students in the following areas:

• Boost their reading and writing of numbers skills.
• Enhance a strong number sense by grasping value and relationships between digits in a number.
• Strengthen their place value knowledge of all numbers.

## How to Use These Task Cards in the Classroom

These task cards are so versatile and can be used in the classroom in several ways based on what you might need for your students; here are just a few ideas from a teacher:

• Use a daily task card as a morning activity for a math warm-up.
• Divide the task cards into leveled bundles and use them in math rotations as a differentiated task for ability groups in your classroom.
• Send a task card home with each student to do as a homework activity.
• Turn it into an active game by placing the task cards around the classroom and have students walk around to each task card to complete on their recording sheet.
