Practice first grade addition and subtraction word problems with these math centers! They align with 1st grade Common Core standard 1.OA.1 for students to work on various story problems within 20. They consist of puzzles, task cards, and activities! They are designed for you to use in your math centers and rotations.

Included are 4 different math stations for 1st grade word problems within 20:

  1. Match Game: Students will match each word problem with the correct equation.
  2. Order Up: Students will figure out the answers to diner orders using burger, sundae, and milkshake pieces as manipulatives.
  3. Word Problem Puzzles: Students will put together 6 different puzzles. Each puzzle contains three pieces: a word problem, part-part-whole organizer, and the answer.
  4. Hunting for Word Problems: In this task card activity, students will solve a word problem and find the next card by looking for the answer from the previous card.

FYI: These centers are very similar to the 2nd Grade Word Problem Centers. The activities are the similar but follow 1st grade standards for word problems.
