This 87 page story problem pack includes 5 story problems for each month of the year, starting in August and ending in July. Each month contains 2 addition problems and 2 subtraction problems that require regrouping practice, and 1 multiplication or division story problem.
Each problem comes on an easy to use, consistent math mat that will help you effectively teach your students how to solve story problems. The routine directions will quickly train your students to go through the successful steps of identifying the operation, crossing out unneeded information, showing work, identifying strategies used, and writing about how they solved the problem.
Each month also comes with a student cover page for his or her 5 story problems of the month. Complete one per week, place in a math center, use each pack as homework, or use each month's pack as it's own math mini-unit! The possibility of uses for this year-long pack are endless!
This pack was designed for 2nd grade and would also be perfect for 3rd graders who continue to practice story and word problems with regrouping. This pack would also be appropriate for intervention classrooms, small group math, advanced first graders, and any student who struggles with math and needs a consistent, routine program to help them become successful story problem solvers.
