Blogiversary Giveaway Winner and Math Story Problems

Congrats to Sarah at Sarah's First Grade Snippets!  She is the winner of my 1 Year Blogiversary Giveaway!  

I'll be emailing you soon, Sarah!  Check out my TpT store and let me know which 3 items you would like for me to send you.  :)

While I'm here I wanted to share my new Story Problem Pack with you!  

This is going to be short though because my parents have recently bought a BEAUTIFUL new home so I am helping them move.  My dad still can't lift or do much after his surgery so I'm trying to help as much as I can while on Spring Break.  I'm taking a break to blog, but then I'm headed to the kitchen to organize and pack.  :) 

Here is my Story Problem Pack: 

We have been working on story problems with our kiddos as a grade level so I created some to use for extra practice.  My kiddos read the story and then we discuss whether we are going to add or subtract.  We talk about the key words and how we figured out which sign to use and then we color them.  

I know my kiddos are much more on task if they can use a crayon or two.  :)  

Then we write the math sentence, put the answer on the line and include a label.  

I really think using these have helped my least I hope so!  I am going to be adding more story problems along with posters and story problems with regrouping for my higher kiddos.  

This pack is $3 right now, but will go up as I add to it.  Purchasing it now will mean that you get the added pages for free because you can download the updates as I get them ready!  ;)

As always I will give *5 away for free* to the first 5 people who leave their email address and share a tip for solving story problems!

My students love to act them out. :-)

I would love to have these. I teach my students to underline the question in the problem because sometimes they forget what they are supposed to answer after they have read the entire thing!


Mikaela said...

This looks great! I'd love a copy. I teach my students to use a strategy (draw a picture, diagram, number sentence, bar model, etc.).

Suzy Q said...

I like to include an extra number from time to time to be sure students know which ones to use. Otherwise, there aare only two numbers!

My students do well with key words for addition and subtraction.

Miss VerSteeg said...

Love it! I have my students highlight the actual question. When they are finished solving, they go back and make sure their answer matches that question. Otherwise, sometimes we guess what we need to do or assume we're being asked something different.
