The Common Core Standards state that first graders need to "represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction". This is the product to help you make sure your students are engaged in problem solving. Included in the packet are 24 November themed word problems to print as a booklet or as single pages. This product is appropriate for 1st and 2nd graders. This packet was created by Deana Thelen from www.firstgradechatter.blogspot.com.
