This is a 14 slide Powerpoint to be used to solve subtraction word problems. The first 11 slides are the actual Powerpoint. Slide 12 gives directions for the independent work. Slide 13 is the worksheet the students will use. The way I use this is by having my students in groups of 3-5. I have slide 13 cut into strips. Each group of students gets one set of the strips. Then they all have their own copy of slide 14, which is the sheet they use to solve their problems, show their work, and give their answers. The groups share the slips of paper with each other until they've answered all 5 problems individually. Then they all turn in their own individual worksheets.
This covers 4th grade Common Core Standards 4.NBT.3 and 4.NBT.4.
