A couple days after introducing word problems I found that my firsties were making weird mistakes. It wasn't that they didn't understand the questions, they were mis-reading or guessing the number words!
I felt SO bad that I'd accidentally set them for failure...woops!
So, I made these handy-dandy cheat sheets! I gave them to all my kids so no one felt picked on, they had a blast coloring them in and now they keep in with their math books and refer to them as and when needed.
I made them in black and white so they're super printer friendly. I printed them on white paper so my kids could color them, but you could print on colored paper, laminate and keep in a center if that's what you need! They'd also work great printed half size and put in the front of a Math journal.
Hope they're helpful!
