Do your first graders need practice solving addition and subtraction story problems to 20 this winter? These task cards have missing addends in all positions and work well in math stations or during guided math groups. QR Code cards are available for students to easily self-check their work when completed, or they can be used without them.

I have included my Problem Solving routine mini anchor chart as a freebie with this download. Help students remember the process by incorporating movement and repetition.

You will also find a Mini Word Problem Booklet in this set. Students can create open ended responses using the snowy winter images as inspiration. Fill-in-the-blank options are also included to support early/nonwriters.

This Winter Story Problem Activity includes:

✅ 12 Colorful Snowy Themed Word Problem Cards (for centers)

✅ Recording Sheets (color & blackline)

✅ 2 Worksheet pages for homework or quizzes (using the same word problems as reinforcement)

✅ Answer Keys for easy correcting

✅ QR Code Cards for self-checking

✅ Problem Solving Mini Anchor Chart

✅ Mini Winter Word Problem booklet with fill in the blank options for young writers
