What's the Word is aligned with CCS 2.OA.1.
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.
I created this packet to use in my classroom and have seen huge success! I hope you do too!
