This is a packet that contains 22 different story problems for math, all related to Easter.
It includes problems related to:
*adding and subtracting 2 addends
*missing addend story problems
*3 addend adding and subtracting story problems
*10 more or 10 less
*Adding 2 digit numbers
*Subtracting multiples of 10
TWO VERSIONS ARE INCLUDED: VERSION 1: Each page has a different problem with room for students to show their work AND they also have room to WRITE their thinking, using a simple form carried over from Language Arts.
VERSION 2: There is less room for showing work/drawing pictures and added room for writing their reasoning. It includes the First, Next, Then and Last but I also added "because" and a line to finish the thought.

Thank you! That was the main reason that I created these. I've found that my students are getting to be quite the little experts on explaining their thinking---instead of just telling me that they just "knew the answer" (or give me the blank stare, as to say "how dare she ask me how I figured it out!!") =)
Awww! Thank you so much for the kind words and encouragement! :) I just started working on my Bug Literacy for the first part of May (math is finished and up) and started brainstorming for the last pack to use for the school year!! Can't believe that's soon upon us! Then---I will work on the first half of the year! :)
