Product Description
Tricky Word Problems

You can never have too many word problems, can you?

This product contains 20 "tricky" word problems for 1st grade. I have included 2 different formats. One is a printable page format with 1 problem per page. They complete 4 steps to help solve the problem. I have also included all 20 problems in a math journal format if you prefer to use them this way.

The steps in these math story problems were created for the purpose of making sense of a problem, instead of using tricks and key words to solve a problem. Students must understand what the problem is asking them to do before solving it. This product is mainly composed of single-digit addends since the standard focus for 1.OA.1 is on the problem-type.

This bundle includes the following types of problems:
-the change is unknown (i.e. 9 + ? = 14)
-the start is unknown (i.e. ? + 5 = 14)

**Please Note: This set of story problems is part of a larger bundle. To purchase the entire bundle of 1st Grade Story Problems at a discounted price, please use the following link:

This collection of 20 math story problems focuses on the following Common Core Standards:

1.OA.1 Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.
1.OA.4 Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem.
1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.
