This Word Problems by the Standard packet contains 32 (plus 4 bonus) word problems that cover the second grade standard: 2.MD.5 – Use addition & subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths. The word problems are provided as task cards (in black & white and color) and student versions (to be glued into interactive math journals). Also provided are various recording sheets.
These word problems can be used in several ways:
Option #1: Project the PDF version of the task cards onto an interactive white board and have students complete their work on the recording sheet or in a math journal.
Option #2: Print out task cards, laminate, hole punch and put on a binder ring and use as an independent math center.
Option #3: Provide students with their own version of a word problem to glue into and complete in their interactive math journal.
Two recording sheets are provided (both are included in half- & full-page versions). The first provides space for all 36 task card answers. Students can use the space provided to show their work and record their answers. The second recording sheet provides space for 18 answers. This sheet can be provided for students to complete a smaller selection of cards. For the second recording sheet, students must record the number of the task cards they complete.
**Bonus word problems expand on the standard to include multi-step questions that deal with numbers greater than 100.**
Thank you for looking!
