Use these addition and subtraction story mats to engage your students in solving word problems! This packet includes 5 colorful and kid-friendly story mats and corresponding recording sheets. You can use these in small groups or students can use them independently or in pairs. I begin by telling the addition or subtraction story and eventually my little scholars tell their own addition or subtraction story. Students can record their equations on the corresponding recording sheet.
The addition and subtraction story mats address Common Core Standard:
K.OA.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract
within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
1.OA.1 Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
