Getting students to remember whether to add or subtract on story problems takes time. Then, once they get it, they forget it soon after the unit is finished. Take 2 minutes out of each day to practice one October/Halloween themed addition/subtraction story problem to keep it in the front of your student's mind. You can also put these around the room and have students (alone or with a partner) move card to card in 1 minute/30 second rotations to play a scoot game. All story problems are addition or subtraction. Some are one step and some are two steps.
Included: 19 October/Halloween themed story problems, 1 cover (to keep task cards together on a key ring if using whole class), 1 scoot record sheet (if using as an around the room game).
