The digital version includes all the same activities in an interactive, Google slides format. In addition to these activities, the digital experience includes:

  • detailed teacher guide explaining the activities and how to customize them for your students
  • Audio available for students who need to have instructions read to them
  • Answer key for digital version

The links to the digital files are included in the PDF download upon purchase.


Standards addressed in this resource:

All math review units include thorough instructions for set up and answer keys when applicable. If you’re feeling creative, math reviews make GREAT room transformations! Please share any pictures with me via Instagram (@theaverageteacher).
