It's taken me a little while, but I have finished the first pack. It has 25 addition and 25 subtraction word problems.
The pages all follow a consistent format to help in developing student independence. These problems all have a sum to 10 and are simple ‘joining’ addition and classic take-away style problems - perfect for the start of the year. The 25 addition and 25 subtraction pages are jumbled up (so that students have to work out the operation).
Each page has an addition or subtraction number story (or word problem). Students visualize the problem and draw a picture to represent it. This can help some students work out whether the problem requires them to add or subtract. In addition, students will complete a 10-frame, number line and number sentence (or equation) for each problem.
I plan on developing more packs as the year progresses that will gradually increase in difficulty and include different styles of questions (start unknown, difference unknown etc). I already have some other packs in the works.
On another note, the other week we were looking at probability and events that will, might and won't happen. I made up this quick little activity which you can download in Google Drive. It's a bit late for Halloween, but you might want to put it away for next year. The kids had a lot of fun with it.
Remember to comment with your must see holiday destination! :D
