Addition and Subtraction Word Problems
These addition and subtraction word problem task cards are perfect for the beginning of the school year! There are two sets of 20 cards. The problems use 1, 2, or 3-digit addition or subtraction. The first set of task cards use many key words to cue students about which operation to use. The problems are mostly result unknown. The second set of task cards has problems with either the start or change unknown, and students will need to rely more on figuring out if they are joining or separating problems. The same problems are also provided as journal prompts which students can cut out and glue into their math journals. You might want to have them work the problems in their journals first, then later put the task cards into a math center for extra reinforcement.
Included in this product:
2 sets of 20 task cards
2 sets of 20 journal prompts
8 open-ended journal prompts
2 recording sheets
