Place Value to Thousands: Using Key Words to Add or Subtract

Quick, how many key words for addition and subtraction can you name in the next ten seconds? Hurry, the fate of the whole universe hangs in the balance!

…Okay. Maybe we got a bit carried away. But we know you understand; math is exciting!

This handout (a.k.a. the 13th installment of our Place Value series) focuses on solving addition and subtraction word problems by using key words. We highlight some key words for both addition and subtraction, and provide lots of good practice for your stellar students. They will find key words, determine the correct operation to solve problems, and show their work. You don't want to miss this one!

If you like this handout (we suspect you will), be sure to come back and scoop up our time- and money-saving Place Value with Addition and Subtraction within 1,000 Bundle.

Now, let’s have a look at the way we’ve structured this handout, shall we?

Here's what we provide:

* Mini-Lesson: Learn the Skill
-Skill is laid out in an easily digestible format with vocabulary, definitions, diagrams and an example problem. Students have this tool at their fingertips while completing the assignment.

* Use What You Know: Apply the Skill
-Offers immediate reinforcement of the skill. Questions approach problems from more than one angle to ensure full understanding.

* Prove What You Know: Test Prep
-Students can never be TOO ready for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests, so here they practice good test-taking strategies with multiple choice questions.

* Spiral Review
-Kids' brains are like sponges, but knowledge can leak back out if they don't re-soak, so to speak. This review dusts the cobwebs off of earlier units.

* Answer Key
-Time is money (or rest, or quality time with your family, or really whatever you want to spend it doing), so we always include answer keys for the teacher-on-the-go!

Note: If you've used our math handouts before, you'll notice this product doesn't have our usual "Show What You Know: Word Problems" section, but fear not! The problems in the "Use What You Know: Apply the Skill" section of this particular handout are written in word problem format, so the section pulls double duty.


* Print in color for best results

* Consider printing front and back for green points

* Consider splitting up the longer handouts (more than 2 pages) across multiple days (i.e. odd/even)

* Continue shopping at the 88Brains store ;)

* Keep being awesome
