This set of 17 task cards all have mathematical stories, but the students make up the problem. There are many different word problems that can be created with each problem!
For first grade, these problems can be done as a whole group in the beginning of the year. In second grade, many of these problems could be done as a whole group or individually.
addition and subtraction
Some of the problems can also include students creating graphs. There are so many possibilities.
This set includes directions and a sample of how this can be used in your classroom.
I created this set after helping students in third through fifth grade struggle with word problems. By having stories with lots of mathematical possibilities, I felt like students would have so many more opportunities to practice and apply what they have learned.
