Let's have some fun with winter!
This age group can always use practice adding and subtracting... ESPECIALLY with REGROUPING... So why not make it fun?
These story problems allow them to have fun with math, practice coloring in the lines, cutting precisely and gluing.
Students get to color a present or tree and solve the number sentence. They glue the present or tree into their notebooks (or onto a piece of construction paper) and write a story problem underneath. (Please see pictures for a better explanation.)
Students get to be creative, practice their math skills and master precise cutting and gluing.
The finished product is adorable and perfect for a bulletin board.
These story problems are also great for in a pinch sub plans! They are self explanatory and time consuming for kids. Rest assured that your students are spending their time doing quality work while you are not there.
They are practicing their adding and subtracting but also getting to the highest level of Bloom's Taxonomy... CREATION! They can write a story problem or draw a picture using ten sticks and ones cubes.
