This is a file that includes story problems with 3 addends. The problems are differentiated and include numbers that will allow students to use different strategies to solve the problems (looking for doubles, tens fact, or fluent facts.) I added the clip art to help my ELL students understand what was happening in the problem.
I used them in my classroom as a partner activity, where partners received the same problems and worked together to solve them. I then printed off a set, laminated them and kept them as a center to provide my students practice.
The final pages include problems with blanks so that you may write in your own numbers. Students could also create their own 3 addend story problems to solve.
