The purpose of this read-the-room activity is to provide practice with solving one-step word problems. I’ve included different types of problems to address the Common Core State Standards for grade 2. Students in other grades could also benefit from this product.
NOTE: This packet is also included in a bundle of story problems (Playgrounds, Pets, and Picnics)
Common Core State Standards addressed:
CCSS.Math.Content.2.OA.A.1 Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
