Help your students to master their addition and subtraction facts, as well as improve their problem solving strategies using these word problem task cards.
This particular set (the first of three sets) contains easier problems and they are typically the ones that I use during the first 3 months of the school year. There are a total of 60 problems and all of the problems focus on addition and subtraction within 100. I use one each day as part of my daily math meeting, but you could use them as a small group activity, as a math center, or in student math journals. This set contains a variety of problem structures including join problems (result unknown, change unknown, and initial unknown), separate problems (result unknown, change unknown, and initial unknown) part-part-whole problems (whole unknown, and part unknown) and compare problems (difference unknown, larger unknown, and smaller unknown).
Although these cards were created to address the second grade standard (2.OA.A.1), they could also easily be used with 1st and 3rd grade students needing remediation or enrichment.
I have provided each problem in 3 different sizes.
The full size page is perfect for displaying on a problem of the day board or smart board. The medium size cards(1/4 page) work great as task cards or for use in a math center. The smallest cards (in black and white) are ideal for copying, cutting, and pasting into student math journals. Answer keys are included. The cards were designed to progressively more difficult and with so many to choose from, it will be easy to differentiate your instruction to meet the various needs of your students.
I have created 2 other sets of problem solving task cards (available at my TPT store, click on the links below) which contain more difficult problems including multistep problems.
You can also purchase the complete set containing the word problems from all 3 sets at a discounted price and giving you a total of 180 problems!
