These problems are designed with the rigor of the Common Core in mind and support the following standard:
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.A.1 Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Students are presented with multiple ways to solve each problem. Once students are familiar with the ways these sheets support their problem solving, I often have each student choose at least 2 ways to show and check their work. This allows each student to utilize the methods that are most efficient for him/her. I love to give students time to discuss why they chose certain methods to solve a problem!
Each sheet includes a related extension/bonus question at the bottom. These questions can be used in a variety of ways.
These bonus questions are perfect extension activities for students to discuss and complete at home with a family member. I love to see the extension work that students return! Many parents have commented that they appreciate the challenging nature of these questions.
When these word problems are used for whole-group instruction, it is common for some students to have completed tasks while others still need support. “Early finishers” can read the bonus question, flip their paper over and work on this challenge question while the teacher provides individual and/or small group instruction as needed. In this way, these bonus questions help teachers differentiate during group lessons.
