# Early Finishers Build-a-Word-Problem Spring Theme

Product Description
Early Finishers Build-a-Word-Problem Spring Theme Math Center

Over 19,000 word problem options! You will never hear early finishers say, “What do I do now?”, again!

Plus use student generated word problems from this resource, and you will always have practice problems on-hand!

So much fun while still being very rigorous and easy to differentiate!

The activity focuses on the process of writing math word problems. As students are having fun randomly drawing cards for their noun, operation, and numbers, they are also selecting the criteria they will use to write their own word problem.

✎Very effective for helping students analyze test questions!

You can easily differentiate by selecting which set of numbers and/or operation cards you place in the center. You can also add your own rules, such as:

• Your problem must be two step.
• Your problem must have extra information.
• Your problem must include two different operations.
• The number you draw will be your answer

So-o-o much fun and learning for a time when it can be really difficult to hold students' attention. -Oh, and don't forget to have them share their problems. ♥ They love that!

Here's What's Included:

♦ 44 Spring Noun Picture Cards

♦ 45 Operation Cards (all 4 operations plus parentheses, brackets, and exponents for square and cube numbers)

♦ 54 Number Cards (From 1-digit to 4-digit plus simple fractions)

♦ 2 pages of blank cards for differentiation - Create Your Own (decimals, negative numbers, factorials - just meet the needs of your early finishers!)

♦ Student recording sheet for writing their own problems

♦ Student Solution Page - requires students to write an equation, visual representation, and words to solve

✄ Teacher Note: I made the lines around the cards wide so that you can overlay them to cut several at a time and still stay "in the lines". This makes set-up even faster and saves you valuable teacher-time! :)

Just print, laminate, cut apart, and use year after year!
