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 22 October/Halloween themed word problems to print as a booklet or cut and glue into notebooks. This product is appropriate for 1st and 2nd graders.
