Story problems show you so much about a child's math thinking. This set of story problems focuses on 2-digit addition with and without regrouping. I have done the work for you in creating this set of rigorous and fun Thanksgiving Story Problems! That's enough for the entire month of November!
There are two versions of the same problem. All of the problems involve a family's preparation for Thanksgiving dinner. There are many scenarios that your children might find humorous. Math can be fun and entertaining, right?
Use the two games, both in INK FRIENDLY versions, as centers, partner or small group activities. Turkey Trot and Spin a Turkey are sure to be hits with your students!
One set of 20 problems consists of the story problem, which is correlated with 2.OA.1 Common Core State Standards. There are check boxes for 'highlight the key words' and 'reread the problem'. There is a workspace for the children to show their computation or drawings. There is also a space for children to explain their thinking in writing. Reminder check boxes are 'Operation used' and 'Tell how and why you solved it the way you did'.
The second version of the same 20 problems, the PAPER and INK SAVER, consists of a single sheet of multiple copies of the same problem. These are designed to be cut apart and glued into each child's math journal.These pages also have a notation at the bottom telling how many problems are on each page. This is to make it easier for you to know how many pages to duplicate for your class.
All pages or cut-apart strips are numbered in case you want to use them in sequence.
The problems involve multiple steps, in some cases, addition and subtraction with regrouping, and problems that lend themselves to the introduction of multiplication through repeated addition.
