Solving story problems is a tough skill. Right? Students need consistent practice in order to master them. Turn your students into story problem champs with this set of 32 rigorous story problems! There are four versions. All of them require regrouping of two-digit or three-digit addition and/or subtraction problems.
While these were designed to challenge my second graders (particularly my high group), they are perfect for third or fourth review or reteaching in your RTI or small math groups. They are also perfect for test prep to help students identify important information and solve multi-step problems.
The four types of problems are aligned to Common Core State Standards for second grade. They are also coded so you know the type of problem you are assigning to your students. You can target students who need work on a specific type of problem solving strategy with a glance at the code at the bottom of the page!
The codes are:
1O.UI – One operation with unnecessary or extra information
10.3.4 – One operation, three or four addends (2-digit numbers)
2S.2O – Two-steps (or more) problem, addition and subtraction (2-digit numbers)
2S.20.3D – Two-steps (or more) problem, addition and subtraction (3-digit numbers)
If you have purchased my 30 Days of Differentiated Story Problems, you'll find this spring edition to have the same format: standard in the form of an "I can" statement, story problem, work space, and space for students to explain their thinking.
Gracious feedback on the 30 Days of Differentiated Story Problems is why I created THIS set for spring! Take a look at some of the feedback for the original product.
