These story problems are a great way to help your kiddos understand when to add and when to subtract. I have used these with my Tier 1 and Tier 2 kiddos.
These story problems would be appropriate for higher level kindergartners, first graders, or struggling second graders.
Under each story problem is a big addition and subtraction sign. We color the addition sign blue when we add and the subtraction sign red when we subtract. You can use any color you want, but it helps my kiddos having the visual.
Then we circle the numbers, underline the label, and highlight the important story words that helped us with the matching color.
I have recently updated this pack and it has more than DOUBLED in size! I included a couple different anchor charts for you and your kiddos and ice cream cones to help your kiddos remember addition key words and subtraction key words! They will love making ice cream! :)
You can staple these pages in a story problem book or you can cut them in half and have your kiddos glue them into their math journal. Make it work for you!
Hope your kiddos enjoy these story problems! :)
