PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Back to School
Word Problems

Because we always need more practice with
word problems!

Here’s What’s Included In This Resource:
30 word problems (15 pages)
2 assessments (5 problems each)
1 student progress graph

30 word problems based on the first grade common core standards. Since this is a back to school theme and used at the beginning of the year, the problems include only sums to 10. I want to focus on the process during the first several weeks and there are several challenging types of problems. (The rest of my word problem themes in my TPT offer both sums to 10 and sums to 20). I find that no matter which math series we have, there is never enough word problem practice (not to mention that there are many word problems on assessments like NWEA MAPS.) I plan on starting week one this year.


HOW I PLAN TO USE THIS RESOURCE
I start by giving the 5 problem (10 point) diagnostic assessment included in this resource. I then plan to do whole class instruction using one page at a time. We can do the top problem together (either me directly modeling or a shared group effort). Then the bottom problem could be done as guided practice. I also plan on using these as quick formative assessments and in my small guided math groups. I plan to laminate about half of the pages to create task cards for this purpose. I will give the other 5 question (10 point) assessment as a formative and continue instruction based on those results. At the end of the unit/month, I will give the initial assessment again (we do not go over answers for diagnostic) as a summative assessment. These 3 scores will be graphed by the students on the graph included. I then will continue with the October version of the word problems!
