Product Description
What do you do when you are handed a somewhat mind boggling matrix of Common Core word problems for you to transfer to some very young minds? Besides letting out a huge sigh, you've probably tried to search all over for materials and resources. Without much luck, I've went ahead a created some for my own students.

I've created Tape Diagram Monsters to teach the twelve different types of addition and subtraction word problems that are part of the Common Core Standards, but in a kid friendly way. I've created worksheets that break the word problems down, problem by problem. I've also kept the sums and differences no higher than 10. This helps keep students' undivided attention on the mathematical reasoning and logic part of the problem. (Operations and Algebraic Thinking)

This summer I've added a lot of extras to the Tape Diagram Monsters that I have already been using this past year. Here is what you will receive.

Over 200 Pages of Material
Teacher Guide Notes/Suggestions
Student Notes (to hand out)
Student Assignment Worksheets for Every Type of Problem
Mixed Practice Worksheets,
Template Pages
Answer Keys

I have personally found that these lessons have helped my students gain a rich understanding of how to set up word problems and visually decide on how to go about them. In other words, students make leaps and bounds in the area of mathematical logic associated with word problems.

Tape Diagram Monsters is a time saver and a great way to kick off the math year strong.

Happy Teaching!
