This is a great set for your students that are just beginning to add and subtract, with word problems! Included are word problems that use tens frames, so there are no sums more than 10.
To use the activity, students use a blank tens frames mat. Then they choose a word problem card and set it on the mat. Using a dry erase marker, they can use the tens frame to assist them in solving the problem. Finally, the students will write a number sentence that matches the problem. For enrichment or assessment, I've also included blank question cards if you'd like your kiddos to write their own story word problems.
There is a set of 10 tens frames mats and 40 question cards (20 create your own blank cards) included in this set. I've included 2 recording sheets and two enrichment printables also.
As a bonus, I've also included two posters of key addition and subtraction problems to help your students decide if they should be subtracting or adding!
Word problems have never been so fun! A Subtraction Edition is on the way! Please see the preview for a look at each problem and additional cards included.
