Product Description
Use this editable PowerPoint to help students build their story problem expertise! Since you can edit the problems and answers, you can customize this product to use again and again in your classroom! The story problems included in this show are appropriate for second and third grades, but they can be customized for any elementary grade level.

I typically use this as a whole class activity as I introduce using clue words as a problem solving strategy for word problems. Students are asked to write the number sentence (equation) and clue words on white boards as we watch the show (slides 3-72) together.

Included with this activity:
* 20 addition and subtraction story problems and answers (editable)
* Slides with tips for solving story problems
* Slide with "clue words" for addition (editable)
* Slide with "clue words" for subtraction (editable)
* Thank you page
* Credits page
* Copyright page

There are 20 problems included in this set (8 level 1, 7 level 2, and 5 level 3 questions). These are all addition and subtraction story problems. Problems are organized by level of difficulty and increase in difficulty throughout each section. If you would like to make the problems easier/harder, the problem and answer slides are editable. The clue word slides are also editable since the kids will always think of new clue words. The slides with graphics are not editable due to copyright restrictions from The Graphics Factory.

Possible Modifications:
*Print out the PowerPoint slides and use as an around the room (a.k.a. scoot) activity
*Have students play the show on individual computers using the answer slides to check their work
*Use one or two problems as a daily math warm up
*Use a few problems a week at an independent math center
*Print out the show in handout form and use the problems and answers as task cards
*Have students write similar problems (with answers) to add to the show or make their own show
*Print out slides 11, 12 and 17 as resources for student math journals

Check out the preview to see if this would be a helpful activity for your math class.

Thanks for looking!
