Now bringing you, Task Box #5 - The Math Calculator.
I cut index cards in half, and wrote simple addition formulas on the top with 2 potential answers on the bottom.
The student was not good at writing and needed to work on strengthening his fine motor skills so I added a fine motor element for an added challenge. During independent work, he would use the calculator to add the two numbers together. Then, he would mark the answer with a clothespin and put it in the "All Done Can".
Although this did not support the student in learning simple addition calculations, it did work on two other needed skills: fine motor strengthening and independently working to complete a task. It also was successful in keeping the student interested, motivated, and exposed him to math concepts.
