Math Practice Pages
Invite pairs of students to create stories for a binder full of practice pages. They fill in the stories then solve the problem without writing on the paper. Have them write the answer and an explanation on the back of the paper. For extra practice, students can take a story from the binder, solve the problem, and check their answer on the back. They can then return the story to the binder.
