Real World Problems is a HUGE and very important unit in 1st grade. This freebie includes 3.2 which is just finding the unknown number (difference only). The resources included are practice problems that include strategy mats for students and teachers. The strategies on the mats are ten frames, number line, draw a picture, and part-part-whole. Students are even given a box to write the equation. This is an excellent resource to display on the board or to give every student a copy of the problem. It allows students to show their work and gives them the opportunity to solve using multiple strategies.
Students can also use the success criteria and learning targets at the top of each page to check if they are being successful. Did they find the unknown number? Teaming questions are also included and students have to determine what strategy is the best for solving the word problem.
This section comes with 15 practice problems with the strategy mats.
This is just part 2 out of 7.
