Word problems are powerful tools for developing addition and subtraction skills. Use these easily differentiated, editable problems with joining and separating (result unknown) skills that also allow your students to choose number sets.
This resource includes everything you need to know to successfully start a word problem routine in your classroom. This particular resource is designed for kindergarten, but you can make your number sets larger and change some wording in the problems to easily adapt this to older grades.
