I designed these word problems for 2nd graders to give them practice and help get them ready for testing. They can be used with 3rd graders too. We used these from day 1 of school. The students were so used to thinking math problems, that they had no anxiety when testing time came.
These are fun questions all about animals to get your 2nd and 3rd graders ready.
Use it as a bell ringer, working on one problem a day. Give students about 5 minutes to solve the problem itself. Then, go over it together. Sometimes rearrange the order of questions, depending on the skills of your students.
They can be practiced over and over again until students feel comfortable with the skills.
