Story problems in math can be tricky for young students! The following packet contains five story problems for *each month of the year,* starting in August and ending in July. Each month comes with a cover page for your kids.
Each story problem uses the same procedure and directions so you can effectively train your students to go through a successful process of problem solving. The story problem also uses a work mat that has a place to show work, identify strategies the child used to solve the problem, and offers a place for students to write about how they solved it - a critical step in showing an understanding in mathematics.
Each month's story problems comes with two addition problems, two subtraction problems, and a problem that requires the identification and application of a number pattern. An answer sheet for the teacher is also included for each month.
This year-long packet is perfect for first graders. It would be a great tool for struggling second and third graders and intervention students. Due to the consistency and structure of the program, this would also be an effective tool for RTI, small group, and tutoring.
