Features of the worksheets

✮ Simple to read and understand word problems

Number line for students to use the strategy of counting backward from a given number

Keywords checkbox to remind students to identify keywords in the word problem and mark them by coloring, circling or underlining them with a color pencil.

✮ Boxes to fill in the correct equation

✮ 1 word problem per page. Print 2 to a page if you prefer them smaller.

3 versions for differentiation:

Draw Students to draw pictures to solve it

Color Students to color a ten frame accordingly to it

Cut and Paste Students to cut and paste given manipulatives accordingly to solve it

These worksheets are great as practice for beginners to addition and subtraction word problems by using various strategies. There are 3 SETS of 20 WORD PROBLEMS EACH. Each set is slightly differentiated to suit the learning style and preference of your students. I have had students who just love drawing, while others simply loathe it and would just prefer coloring or cutting and pasting activities. So, you get to choose which version suit your students best!

For further practice, you can also use the EDITABLE PDF file (with fillable form fields) to plug in your own numbers into the word problems. So much flexibility in one pack!

These worksheets also encourage students to read carefully and IDENTIFY KEYWORDS in addition and subtraction word problems. Students will of course need some guidance by the teacher to do this in the initial stage. Through repeated identification practice, they would be more familiar with the keywords associated with addition and subtraction. This would be very useful later on when they have to determine which operation they should use in word problems.

Aligned with Common Core:

✮ CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.OA.A.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

✮ CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.A.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence

✮ CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
