Your students will love solving these Christmas themed addition and subtraction word problems for working within 100! There are elves, reindeer, cupcakes, presents, trees, and more! (No Santa!)
The first standard for Operations and Algebraic Thinking for second grade says:
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step 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.
