This math center resource includes seven spinner word problem centers for addition and subtraction (up to 1,000,000). Engage your students in word problems with these “fun” centers. Each spinner includes 5 word problems for a total of 35 word problems in this resource.
Each center is labeled with a letter in the upper right-hand corner for organization and the skill in the lower left-hand corner. The centers are only available in black and white. Print them on colored paper and laminate for repeated use.
To “play” the spinner, have the students use paperclips and pencils to spin word problems. They will read and solve the word problems. Then they will spin again. If they spin the same word problems again, they will justify their answers. If they spin the same word problems more than twice, they can just spin again.
I purposely did not assign a certain number of word problems to be completed so that you can differentiate them for your classroom.
There is one center for each of the following skills:
Adding Whole Numbers (No Regrouping)
Subtracting Whole Numbers (No Borrowing)
Adding and Subtracting Whole Numbers (No Regrouping or Borrowing)
Adding Whole Numbers (With Regrouping)
Subtracting Whole Numbers (With Borrowing)
Subtracting Across 0s
Adding and Subtracting Whole Numbers (With Regrouping or Borrowing)
There are two answer key versions included in this file. One version if you want to allow the students to self-check and another version for the teacher to grade student work.
