This is a tub I use in my classroom. This activity includes 25 different word problems that can be done using the four step problem. The tub includes cards with pictures and some without. There are addition, subtraction and missing part problems. Each word problem also includes words for students identify as addition or subtraction words.
I print the cards on colored card stock, laminate them, and cut them up. I have the students circle the addition or subtraction words, underline the numbers and solve on the table using expo markers. I have students who have trouble reading, but they are still able to identify the numbers and whether to add or subtract. The kids have a blast drawing on the table and trying to solve the problems.
