There are 13 addition and subtraction word problems. The word problems are already solved but solved wrong. Students will have to rework the problem and find the right answer. They will then have to explain the error that was made and leave some words of wisdom. There are one and multi-step word problems and the errors are all different.
I have also included a template in case you want to hand write some problems and solve them by an error your students tend to make.
I like to make a Word of Wisdom for Addition and Subtraction poster and quote the student if they put some wonderfully wise words.
My students love to figure out the error and just the right way to state the error. I usually reward students for finding the error and for the best explanations and words of wisdom.
This product has helped my students be able to learn from errors and not make the mistakes. They love to teach each other with the words of wisdom. This has also helped my students identity how answers are trying to trick them when we take multiple choice test.
