I created a simple word document of 30 word problems that are ready to print. All of these word problems are about subtracting within 20. Great for 1st Grade! Simply print them out onto cardstock, cut them out, pass them out to your students along with a blank sheet of paper, and have them draw a picture to find the correct answer. Here is an example:
There are 12 ladybugs on a leaf. 7 of them flew away. How many lady bugs are left on the leaf?
