Word problems are a HUGE element of the Common Core math standards for First Grade.
This packet contains 20 (NOW 23! revised July 2013) word problems that meet 2-4 Common Core standards each. Theses problems are not "fluff"; they are "meaty" problems that will provide 2-3 days of instruction each. A variety of problems address all the elements of the standards with problems for adding to, taking from, breaking apart, etc. Each problem comes with a thorough, full color sample solutions page for ease of grading or for providing a sample to students. If your school is involved in Assessment for Learning, you will find the samples very helpful.
Any of the problems can be used as an assessment piece.
*20 pages of printable word problems NOW 23 pages!
*Thorough, full-color answer key/sample pages for every problem
*Every problem strongly aligned to Common Core math standards in Operations and Algebraic Thinking
*Every page has an attractive picture for early-finishers to color
*First grade appropriate vocabulary in the word problems for more independent work
*Coordinating standards printed on every page
*Problems can be used for assessment
*Grading rubric coming soon (This will be free!)
I made this packet for myself and my first grade friends to use this year and I hope it will be helpful to you too!
I'm putting it up for sale in hopes of making up for some of these furlough days (smile).
