This product is a for a set of 12 word problems with a winter theme. They include addition, subtraction, and skip counting word problems within 100. The problems include regrouping under 100 in both addition and subtraction but not all problems require it.
These problems are created using 2nd grade CC objectives but could easily be used as a review for struggling 3rd graders.
In my own classroom, I have printed out 2 copies of each set. In class, pass out the cards to students. They walk around and find the other student who has the same card number as them. The pair sits down together and solves the problem on the recording sheet. Repeat and share when finished.
I have found that it turns somewhat monotonous word problem practice into an engaging, fun activity.
I have also used them in an independent math center.
This activity is aligned with the 2nd Grade CC Objectives:
CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.2 Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.5 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.6 Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
