Math Word Problems for 2nd Grade focuses on understanding, planning and solving a word problem. Solving word problems can get confusing for students. This pack has everything you need to help them Understand, Plan and Solve! The following word problems are a various word problems that satisfy common core standard 2.NBT.5

This pack was made out of necessity. I have a student that needed as much extra practice and guidance regarding word problems as I can offer. You will find 3 posters, a bookmark, solving word problems explanation and example page, three work mats, 12 word problems to use during one-to-one/small group instruction, 24 strategy guided independent practice, QR tutor for kids who want even more guidance (this will link to youtube channel where the problems are worked through out loud), 35 set of word problems in 3 forms: Set a, is each problem on a sheet individually- this is good for the tutor or special teacher that wants a set for one student. Set b, is each problem on its own sheet, this is good for students that need more direction in solving the problems and excellent for guided practice, and set c is perfect for the classroom teacher because each problem is on one sheet with 7 per page.

  • Overview of Strategies
  • Word Problem Process Bookmark
  • Word Problem Process Posters
  • Guided Doodle Notes for Students
  • Part – Part – Whole Mat (Use during understand)
  • Comparison Bar Work Mat (Use during understand)
  • Solve Work Mat (Use during solve)
  • 12 Word problems to use during small group / individual instruction. Use with work mats.
  • 24 Individual practice word problems to practice the process
  • QR Tutor: Student will solve the problem. If they need help, they can scan the QR code, and it will take them to a video where there is a problem walk through.

All 35 problems are the same for set a, b, c but are presented differently so that they can used simply by the tutor, teacher or parent.

  • SET A: 7 different problems to one page, great to be cut and glued on a sheet of paper or in a math notebook. Great for an individual student.
  • SET B: Each problem is one per page and has strategies on the page for students who need guidance.
  • SET C: 7 of the SAME problem is on one page, this is perfect for the classroom teacher.
