Missing Addend Word Problem | Task Cards:
There are 24 task cards with word problems involving numbers up to and slightly above 20. There are two sets - one set contains pictures, the other, just words - choose your preference! Cards also come with a cover page to make it easy to identify the card contents. You can choose the wording you use with your class (missing numbers, missing addends, part-part whole, unknown addends).
These task cards provide a great way for students to revise and practise solving missing addend word problems. This fun and engaging activity can be done as a whole class or have students work in small groups.
Simply print the task cards (to fit page), cut along the guidelines and laminate for durability. Each student will need a recording sheet to record their answers. The recording sheet corresponds with the task card numbers. Use the answer key to go through answers as a whole class or small group. You may like students to write the full number sentence or just identify the missing addend. The answer sheet includes the complete number sentence with the missing addend highlighted for your convenience.
To modify this activity, you can place the cards around your classroom and have students walk around the room with their recording sheets and clipboard.
