I developed this packet under two basic guiding principles:

•“We can classify word problems by focusing on the types of action or relationships described in the problems.”

•“For addition/subtraction problems, four basic classes of problems can be identified: Join, Separate, Part-Part-Whole, and Compare. The basic structure involving actions and relationships remains the same.”

In these addition and subtraction word problems for kindergarten you will find 4 C.G.I word problem types to teach your students. Each word problem type is presented in three formats:

QR codes solving mats: In this format, students are given a word problem which they can scan and listen to, using the QR code on the top left corner. If you wish to use this feature, students will need an iPod, or old iPhone, or iPad, or tablet with a QR code reader app. If you don’t have a QR code reader yet, you may download this app from HERE. These mats contain a word problem, a space for students to draw their visualization of the problem. It could be with their own doodles or with any representation that you wish to teach them per your district guidelines. After they draw, students will be able to represent using a ten frame, a number line, and a number bond. The last step is the number sentence space. You should aim to teach the process and the discovery of relationships in word problems before students attempt to compute. This is a big issue that I see as students move in their schooling. They are drawn to compute (guessing actually) without UNDERSTANDING the word problem first.These mats can also be used in small groups, or project on your board for your whole group lessons!

Cut and paste problem solving mats: This is a great hands-on approach that will help young learners see part – part – whole relationships while cutting and pasting the actual word problem! These mats could be used in small groups, independent work, assessment, or homework!

Numberless word problems mini-mats: these mini-mats are a perfect addition if your students have math journals.If they don’t have math journals, they can still be used for small groups. Numberless word problems are used to teach students the relationships in word problems without numbers first.Initially, and with your help, students will read the problems without the numbers. Once they have understood what the problem is asking them, then you will fill in the gaps with numbers of your choice. Then, students represent using the ten frame, the number line, and the number bond.

I have also provided some examples to use as classroom posters if you need to!

In the past, I have put all the activities together in a big activity book that we use everyday throughout the school year as problem of the day, or during math centers, or during small groups.
