Teach addition and subtraction word problems with this perfectly scaffolded kit!
First teach students key words using provided blank OR completed anchor charts! This kit also includes smaller versions of these for students to glue into their math journals.
Next, students complete the 6 addition and subtraction word problem task cards in centers or small groups. As they complete the word problems, they plug the number sentences into the crossword puzzle provided. There is an answer key students can use to check their answers or for teachers to check.
Finally, there are 4 other pages with three word problems on each page. Students are asked to write a number sentence with a solution to go with each word problem. These could be used as challenge activity, extra seat work, homework or small group practice.
This is perfect for teachers to see how well students are comprehending the unit, because the kit provides you with activities for all levels of Marzano's scale 0-4.
