Solving addition & subtraction word problems up to 20
Have you heard of the four classifications of word problems? The new Common Core wants us to steer clear of teaching "key words." The new expectation is to teach students to truly understand the meaning of word problems.
This can be TRICKY!! It took me awhile to truly understand the difference between joining, separating, part/part/whole, and comparing. I finally realized that it takes time to write a good word problem that has a focus and purpose.
