September Math: Solving Story Problems First Grade offers practice with the necessary steps for solving mathematical word problems. The steps included are: read the story, circle the numbers or number words given, underline the key words that indicate what mathematical operation needs to be done, draw the representations of the numbers, write the number sentence, solve, and write the sum/answer. There is a Work Mat with the steps to solving the word problems. There are 18 addition number story problems already on the work mats for you to copy and students to solve. They all have a September/fall theme. The stories include numbers in two ways, the numerical and word forms. This is a perfect activity for small group math centers, or for whole class work. If you like this product, I also have, increasing in difficulty and including subtraction: November, December, January, February, March, and April sets already available in my TpT store. If you have a need for a Spanish version, the November one is available in my TpT store, as well!
