Do your students struggle with word problems? Word problems with missing parts? Mine did, so I created this small group and center activity to practice solving word problems with missing addends!
12 addition word problem cards - two different printing options
12 subtraction word problem cards -two different printing options
3 Recording sheet ("write the missing addend". "write the missing subtrahend" and "write the missing part" in the directions)
2 Part-Part-Whole work mats
*All with a Winter theme* (no holiday references)
Print, laminate and cut the word problem cards and you are ready to go! You can keep all the cards at a center, post them around the room, work them out during whole group lessons, small group RtI or individual practice.
I print the work mat on colored card stock and either laminate or slip into a protective sleeve. Students can use manipulatives or dry erase markers to solve each problem. Then they write the equation and missing part the recording sheet.
All cards have equations within 20 and meet CCSS 1.OA.D.8 Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction
equation relating three whole numbers.
