Description

This challenging and fun Halloween problem provides students an opportunity to practice many real-life skills, including addition, subtraction, making financial decisions, and problem solving. This rich task includes three different versions so you may differentiate your instruction.

To set the scene, the students will receive a mysterious letter with a request from some spooky neighbors to help them plan a Halloween party. They will be responsible for making sense of the problem (outlined for them in the letter) and using one of the 3 price lists to follow the criteria in the problem. They must purchase food, beverages, decorations, and other supplies while staying within a certain budget.

Included in this product, you will find:

* A teacher direction page to help you create your lesson plans quickly (with standards addressed included for quick copying and pasting into your personal planning template)

* 1 letter introducing the problem to students

* 3 differentiated price list pages to address different learners or grade levels.

* 2 planning pages for students to use to solve the problem

* 2 pages for students to write their final decisions and keep track of/check calculations

* 1 follow-up letter thanking students for helping to solve the problem

Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
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).
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
