Thanks so much for looking at this product. My sister teaches Kindergarten and

asked me to make a word problem booklet without too many words. She wanted her

struggling students to feel successful while solving these with little or no help after

modeling them, of course.

I call them FIRST STEPS because I truly believe these are a perfect intro to word

problems for Kindergartners or First Graders. Introduce and practice the phrases,

“How many in all? How many altogether? and How many are left?” and chances are good that little ones will be able to work independently on these booklets.

I have included TWO booklets in this set. One addition to 5 and one addition to 10.

The books have two pages on each page so you just need to make collated copies,

cut in half and staple. So easy!

Addition Books: Cover, 6 problems, 1 blank page where kids (or you!)

can make up an additional problem to solve or to trade with a friend to solve. This

additional page is great for differentiation.

TIP: We never allow our students to draw actual pictures of what’s being counted.

Rather we use circles or an X to represent pictures. I tell them it’s not about the art!

I have a series of these in my store. To locate them, you can click on First Steps: Word Problems on the sidebar. I’ll be adding to the collection with the themes that are incorporated into many Kindergarten programs.

Once introduced, these can be used during Daily 3, as Do-Nows, in Sub Tubs,

homework (if given!), etc.

I have included SIX BOOKLETS in each set below. Two addition to 10, two subtraction within 10, and two mixed problems. The second one in each set is the same booklet but offers a number line to use. Great for differentiation! For those ready to use/show the jumps, give them the second book for a challenge.

The books have two pages on each page so you just need to run them, cut in half and staple. Saves paper this way.

✿Addition and Subtraction Books: Cover, 6 problems, 1 blank page where kids (or you!) can make up an additional problem to solve or to trade with a friend to solve. This additional page is great for differentiation.

✿Mixed Book: Cover, six problems (3 addition and 3 subtraction.) This can be used for practice OR for an assessment.

Each of the above also has the same booklet with a number line added. You get

SIX booklets in all.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Mathematically proficient students make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations. They bring two complementary abilities to bear on problems involving quantitative relationships: the ability to decontextualize-to abstract a given situation and represent it symbolically and manipulate the representing symbols as if they have a life of their own, without necessarily attending to their referents-and the ability to contextualize, to pause as needed during the manipulation process in order to probe into the referents for the symbols involved. Quantitative reasoning entails habits of creating a coherent representation of the problem at hand; considering the units involved; attending to the meaning of quantities, not just how to compute them; and knowing and flexibly using different properties of operations and objects.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
