Product Description
These math prompts are great for students in first or second grade. This packet is themed for the months of December and January and includes 71 prompts. The prompts are aligned with the following Common Core Standards:
1.OA.1 Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve 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.
*Since these math prompts were created for winter, the sums of the problems are between 11-20. The students should have mastered using addition and subtraction between 0-10 during the first and second quarter of the school year.

1.OA.2 Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
*Since these math prompts were created for winter, the sums of the problems are between 11-20. The students should have mastered adding 3 whole numbers from 0-10 during the first and second quarter of the school year.

1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
*Since these math prompts were created for winter, the focus is on practicing the associative property of addition. The students should have mastered the commutative property of addition during the first and second quarter of the school year.

I hope you enjoy these prompts. For the ease of printing, I have included only one prompt per page. To help when you are planning, I have written pages with all of the prompts included in this packet. My students use a composition notebook for their math prompts. I give each student a prompt and have them glue it at the top of their page. I have my students draw a picture or model to solve the problem. They must also write the addition or subtraction number sentence that represents their picture or model. If you have any questions, you may email me at jillian.palmatier@gmail.com. Visit my blog neptunesnest.blogspot.com for lots of teaching ideas and downloads.
