This product uses the same questions as my In Santa's Workshop - CGI Math Word Problems (which I use for instruction). That product does not contain numbers within the word problems, allowing you to choose the difficulty according to the needs of your students. This product is meant for independent practice and contains numbers within the problems to allow your students more problem solving practice. This product can be used on its own or in conjunction with the other product. I like to use both products, one for instruction and one for independent/partner practice, because it gives more support to my emerging readers when the vocabulary is already familiar.

This product is also available with numbers up to 20 – In Santa's Workshop - Word Problem Task Cards to 20
