Word problems are an essential part of lower elementary math. Many times we only present students with the typical addition and subtraction word problem. These worksheets are made purposefully to help students gain confidence in working with missing addends. Simply put, these are word problems written with the whole and one part where in students have to solve for the missing part.
This packet includes 13 different word problems presented in a handout style and interactive notebook style. Students are encouraged to show their thinking with objects (cut and paste from sheet), words and numbers.
