Thanks so much for viewing my Addition and Subtraction Story Problem Prompts. These problems can be used during your whole-group math warm ups. Gather students around the carpet with their math partners and pull out a story problem prompt card.

You could also choose to use these story problem prompt cards as a “problem of the day” for your whole-group or small-group math lessons.

These story problem prompts are common core aligned with standards K.OA.1-K.OA.4. The story problems included within the packet will require critical thinking beyond simple addition/subtraction. Critically engaged minds will provide students to explore with “real world” example of using addition and subtraction.

Included in the packet:

- 120 prompt cards

- 2 simple recording sheets

Please be sure to view the preview to download 6 free problems!
