This is a PDF download for a math center/game called "Wacky Word Problems."
This center was created to meet the standards of kindergarten word problem standards, but could easily be adapted to challenge or act as a review for other students as well.
- 5 addition word problem activity mats
- 5 subtraction word problem activity mats
- 16 picture cards w/ copies (32 total)
Students should select a word problem activity mat, select one picture from the picture cards and then find the matching picture. They will need both pictures for the word problem mat. They will then place the picture cards on the red question marks on their mat. They should use any strategy to solve the world problem, and then use a dry-erase marker to write the answer at the bottom. Students will enjoy using picture cards to create their own silly word problem. Since the cards are pictures, this would also be a good activity to introduce ELL students to word problems.
