I wrote these 12 CGI math word problems for the 1st graders at our school. I roughly followed the pacing of the Harcourt math book, but these are stand alone problems. Each problem has 3 number sets so you can differentiate instruction, as well as an extension problem for extra challenge. The skills they encompass are: problem solving, multi-step problems, fractions, adding with doubles and doubles + 1, adding 10, adding 9, extra information problems, addition with 3 addends. These problems are ready to print or you can change them to your own students' names to increase engagement. ANSWER KEY IS INCLUDED.
