Are you finding your little ones are having difficulties mastering two step story problems and other higher level story problems? Look no further. I have created a quick and easy template for students to use when learning/mastering this strategy.
In this packet you will find 32 different story problems. About half are 1 and 2 step problems. (One step story problems are thrown in here and there to make sure students are READING and paying attention. If the pack was just all 2 step problems, then there would just be practice with that. We want our kids to know when to have a multi step story problem vs. just adding or subtracting) The other half include problems that are repeated addition and/or finding patterns (i.e. One the first day I wrote 2 story problems.. the next I wrote 4... If the pattern continues, how many would I write on the 6th day?)
I use these weekly and will be creating 2 books for the month that will be completed each week.
10 story problems include 2 step vs 1 step problems with double digit numbers (with/without regrouping).
10 story problems include 2 step vs 1 step problems with triple digit numbers (addition and subtraction, no regrouping for subtraction)
12 story problems require repeated addition or arrays to solve, as well as looking for a pattern to solve. This template will look a little differently.
This pack has a Valentine themed story problems.
It is meant to be a half page booklet to save paper. You could also have them glue it into interactive notebooks as it will fit perfectly in that as well. I use them as a center in my Guided Math rotation! The kids LOVE them!
Make sure to follow me to find out when more story problems will be added! Practicing two-step story problems just once isn't going to get mastery. It is something that should be practiced regularly and I will have more coming soon!
