Are your students struggling with word problems? I created these word problem mats for my students to practice their math and conquer their word problem fears! Why not give the students something fun to read about while differentiating all at the same time! This is a great way to incorporate Earth day and recycling into math! This packet includes 2 sets of 10 different addition and subtraction word problems. One set has problems within 20 and the second set has problems within 100. This makes for easy differentiation and happy kids!
Each mat is divided into sections, a section for the problem, one to write any clue words, another to draw a picture, a place for the equation, and lastly for the answer.
You can use this many ways! You can use them in small groups, center work, or independent work! Laminate or put in plastic sleeves to use over and over. Have a few early finishers? In the end of each set I have included 2 pages for students to create their own problems for a friend.
Need a printer friendly version? Not a problem! I have included a color version as well as an ink friendly version!
