Story problems are a wonderful to promote critical thinking and help students develop flexibility with numbers. This download contains 12 double digit addition story problems, or "math talks". Math talks are a great way for students to practice and share addition strategies that will help them become efficient mathematicians.
This document is downloadable as a word document so you are free to adjust it to fit your specific needs. I have my students cut apart the problems, glue and solve them in their math journal, which is why they are so close together. The math journal is a great way to collect and assess student thinking over time.
