“They just add all the numbers! It doesn’t matter what the problem says.”
-said Every Teacher. Ever.
These cards were designed to SUPPORT a great Numberless Word Problem lesson (many lessons really) where students are challenged (forced) to consider the context BEFORE just adding or multiplying the numbers! These cards were designed for third graders, hitting all grade 3 operations standards. They worked just as well in fourth grade! (These are a great small group intervention activity for 3rd-6th graders because we add our own numbers.) Reuse the headers & recording sheets for ANY problems. Numberless cards can be reused with different numbers. Students can choose their own or teachers can provide them.
6 teaching templates
24 numberless problems to sort
