Word Problems for 2nd Grade focuses on understanding, planning and solving a word problem. Solving word problems can get confusing for students. This pack has everything you need to help them Understand, Plan and Solve! The following word problems are within 100 satisfying common core standard 2.NBT.5
This pack was made out of necessity. I have a student that needed as much extra practice and guidance regarding word problems as I can offer. You will find 3 posters, a bookmark, solving word problems explanation and example page, three work mats, 12 word problems to use during one-to-one/small group instruction, 24 strategy guided independent practice, QR tutor for kids who want even more guidance (this will link to youtube channel where the problems are worked through out loud), 35 set of word problems in 3 forms: Set a, is each problem on a sheet individually- this is good for the tutor or special teacher that wants a set for one student. Set b, is each problem on its own sheet, this is good for students that need more direction in solving the problems and excellent for guided practice, and set c is perfect for the classroom teacher because each problem is on one sheet with 7 per page.
