Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade word problem types can be tricky for primary math students to master. Help your students keep track of the three basic word problem types: change problems, group problems, and compare problems with these simple posters.
The posters are color-coded by the 3 main word problem types (change, compare, and group) and come in both letter and legal sizes.
Explicitly teaching the difference between the word problem types can help students tremendously. There are actually 15 specific word problem structures Common Core requires K2 students to master. Click here for a resource that can help your students (and yourself!) make sense of the different structures.
Each individual problem type poster includes the name, a visual aid, and a description. There is also a poster with a "quick reference" to all three types in one place.
