This is a DOUBLE set of activities to support work with beginning addition and subtraction. You will receive BOTH a printable file of hands on activities, as well as a SMARTboard file!
The printable PDF file contains nine different story scenarios to be used to create story problems. Each set has a background, picture icons to use when creating the story, and three worksheets for recording the equations. For example, you will receive an iceberg background, penguin pictures, and three penguin worksheets. Each set of worksheets contains one page for all addition work, one for all subtraction work, and a third that has a combination. All of the pictures are REAL photographs - no clip art! - which is engaging to students. Students can manipulate the pictures, building a concrete understanding of story problems that transfers easily to the abstract equations.
The SMARTboard file contains the same story sets, all presented on SMARTboard slides. Again, students can build and manipulate story problems and practice writing equations.
This combination is perfect for large group instruction, small group practice, math center work, and more!
Because it is a double set, you will receive a zip file. Once the file is unzipped, you will have both a PDF of the printable unit and a SMART Notebook file.
This is an excellent resource for helping students to build their skills in adding and subtracting!
