90 differentiated word problems for addition and subtraction (1st grade)! This is the ultimate packet for math problem solving. It has super easy ones for the beginning of the year and the word problems get progressively more difficult. No prep needed! They are ready to print and go. Print these full size or reduce the size so that kids can put them in their math journal.

You can use these as morning work, homework, or classwork. It would be a good idea to laminate them or put them in sheet protectors so that kids can use them as a math center, too:)

Each sheet is labeled at the top, right corner so that it's easy for you to find exactly what kind of math problem you're looking for.

As a bonus, I have included sums to 10 and sums to 20...so you can easily use these to differentiate the same standard for various kids!

Great to use for advanced Kindergarteners and also great for struggling 2nd graders!

Included in this awesome packet, you will get the following:

-10 addition result unknown (8+2=?) – Sums to 10 & 20

-10 subtraction result unknown (8-2=?) – Sums to 10 & 20
