Want an easy and fun way for your students to see numbers grow or shrink when adding or subtracting? Have your students “become” these story problems! Each story has 5 necklaces to be worn by the students, a sample story and an activity to extend into centers.
Included are 12 sets ( a whole year's worth) of necklaces to go along with 12 stories. As you read the short story, the students either join or leave the group of actors. The topics include:
• How Many Apples
• How Many Crayons
• How Many Leaves
• How Many Pumpkins
• How Many Turkeys
• How Many Reindeer
• How Many Snowmen
• How Many Hearts
• How Many Leprechauns

Additional worksheets are included. Below is a sample story for How Many Snowmen.
One snowy day 2 snowmen were standing in the front yard. Jeff and Amy came outside and built 2 more snowmen. How many snowmen are there now?
The next day the sun came out and 2 of the snowmen melted. How many snowmen are there now? Are the numbers getting larger or smaller?
The next day it snowed again and Amy made 1 more snowman. How many snowmen are there now?
The next day Jeff made 2 more snowmen. How many snowmen are there now?
When the sun came back the snow melted and all the snowmen melted. How many snowmen are there now?
You can make up your own stories to make every experience with the story problem necklaces different and fun!
