Problem solving is such a tough skill for the little ones to master. My little ones struggled with this concept so I created this unit. I used parts of it for my initial teaching and the other parts I used in a small group format to reinforce skills.
This unit has story problems that add and subtract with basic 1st grade addition and subtraction. I use different phrasing throughout so that the students become familiar with choosing an operation.
**This could be a refresher or beginning for 2nd grade.**
This unit is aligned with 1st grade TEKS.

-Teaching Suggestions p.3-4
