These anchor charts represent the variety of story problems Common Core requires K2 students to master. Use them to teach the individual types, then post as a reference in your room (they work great projected from the computer as well).
This sample provides 2 anchor charts, 3 sheets of journal prompts, and one assessment. Click here for the full Word Problems Resource Pack!
They are color-coded by the 3 main types (change, compare, and group). Using these has helped my students visualize the problem and has helped keep ME accountable for teaching every type explicitly with a strategy that makes sense.
Each poster features a sample problem and potential strategy. I start lessons by reading the problem, discussing it, then showing the anchor chart to discuss the strategy used and key features of the problem.
For a follow-up activity, students can solve the cut-and-paste story problems in their math journals. Worksheets provide additional practice or serve as assessments.
The full packet includes:
15 Story Problem Posters/Anchor Charts
15 Cut & Paste Journal Prompts (12 of the same problem per sheet)
15 Worksheets/Assessments with 4 problems on each
