Students absolutely love writing their own stories, so it's no surprise that they will have a blast writing their own addition stories! This activity is the perfect add on to your addition lesson plans!
This set includes 3 different addition story board worksheets, each of them differentiated for two different levels (so there are 6 worksheets total). Just print out copies of the worksheets for your class and your lesson is done! I like to print out copies of all three settings so that students can choose where their story takes place.
Depending on the writing needs of the individual student, I’ll either give them the worksheet with the writing prompt so they just have to fill in the blank, or I'll give them the worksheet with the blank lines. I’ll have them model the story with stickers or illustrations, then write a number sentence for the story.
Once their project is complete, I use the included rubric to assess their work and re-adjust the remainder of my addition lessons according to my students’ needs.
