Do your students need extra help with story problems?
These 32 task cards are a great way for students to practice 2 step word problems using addition and subtraction.
Check out the preview to see everything that is included.
Aligned to the common core for second grade!
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions.
I also have task cards for 1 step word problems. Click here to check them out!
Need both 1 and 2 step word problems? Check out this bundle!
Here are some ideas on ways to use these task cards:
Level Ups: Have students work by themselves or with a partner on a task card. When they are finished they bring it up for you to check. If they got it correct they get to “level up” to a new card. Struggling students get the time they need, but your fast finishers don’t get bored because they can move at their own pace.
Around the Room: Place task cards around the room and have students solve problems at their own pace (clipboards would be beneficial).
Scoot: Place one task card on each desk. Have students each start at a desk and solve the task at their seat (record their work on scratch paper or the Scoot Recording Sheet). When you say, “Scoot!” students go to the next desk and solve the task card at that desk. Continue until students are back at their original desks.
Fast Finisher: Have the task cards set up at a station where students can complete them if they finish their other work early.
