This resource contains 32 two-step word problems with a pirate theme for use in 2nd and potentially 3rd grade. Each word problem is printed on a map-like box and is intended to be cut and pasted into maths books.
Common core references are noted at the top of each slide for ease of use, as well as which step in the addition/subtraction learning journey the word problems target specifically. The learning journey is as follows:
- Addition/subtraction of 1-digit numbers (within 100), e.g. 8 - 5 - ?= 2
- Addition/subtraction of a 2-digit number and a 1-digit number (within 100, e.g. 36 - 3 - 9 = )
- Addition/subtraction of a 2-digit number and a tens number, e.g. 31 + 20 - 10 (within 100)
- Addition/subtraction of two 2-digit numbers (within 100) e.g. 23 + 51 - 12
