This is a great activity to challenge your students! I had been teaching my students how to solve both adding and subtracting word problems (without regrouping). My students picked up this math strategy so fast, that I wanted to push them to write their own word problems! This would show me which students truly understood what the word problems meant and which students were simply memorizing procedure. My students loved this activity and enjoyed being able to make the word problems about their own lives!
This product can be used for your whole class (I had my students work in partners to promote collaboration and discussion in math). This product can also be used to push your high students.
This product includes 10 different worksheets, each with a different equation for students to write a word problem based upon. The worksheet also includes a space for students to solve their own word problem!
