This resource contains 30 word problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions (aligned with Virginia SOL 4.5b and 4.5d, but applicable to any classroom). Students will add and subtract fractions having like and unlike denominators (limited to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12). I've included both single-step and multistep problems. Several problems also incorporate charts or pictures.
There are so many options with this set! You can move through the problems one at a time or skip to specific problems as you see fit for your students. These work well as a quick warm-up to your math lesson, an option for morning work, or an activity in a math center/rotation. By solving one problem a day, it’s easy for kids to continue reviewing word problem skills all year long.
Each problem is listed on its own page; it can be projected onto a whiteboard or screen, printed and posted in your room (maybe on an interactive bulletin board), or even printed to create a set of task cards.
Also included are suggestions for preparation and use, an answer key, and a student answer sheet.
