The 11 reproducible worksheets in this product constitute Unit 14 in the MathQuest 1 workbook. This unit focuses on manipulating concrete materials and using pictorial representations to help students choose the appropriate operation in the solution of a word problem involving numbers up to 10. Students are also introduced to completing multi-step addition and subtraction paths.
In the previous units, the children have participated in many activities that help them develop a solid grasp of the addition and subtraction concepts. In this unit, the children are asked to look at situations and apply these concepts of addition and subtraction. This unit also gives children the opportunity to review the facts to 10 before they begin to develop combinations for 11 and 12 in the next unit. Also the children are formally introduced in this unit to the concept of 3 addends and have opportunities to apply it as they generate names for numbers. This teaching is embedded in the context of the nursery rhyme "The Queen of Hearts.” Both hearts and tarts are ubiquitous in this unit, allowing for lots of story problems and their corresponding math sentences.
