Word Problems for Kindergarten Students!
This pack contains some themed word problems around St. Patrick’s Day, March themes such as basketball and lion/lamb, and a few non-themed problems.
It was designed with Kindergarten students in mind. The pack is appropriate for 1st graders who may need practice building fluency within 10, but it does not contain sums greater than 10.
There is also a cover page if you want to have a word problem journal. Simply print the entire pack 2-sided, staple, and your students have a word problem journal for the month!
***TIPS and Instructions – Students listen to or read the word problem (in Kindergarten, it is almost always necessary to read the problems aloud). They may use the included number line and 10 frame (both are on every page) or their own pictures to help them solve the problems. They then write the numbers in the equation template which is set up for them.
It is up to you if you require the drawings. I often teach my students that using circles or tallies can count as a drawing because I don’t want the focus to be the “artwork.” I am hopeful these help you and your Kindergarteners develop word problem practice!
This pack supports the following Common Core Standards:
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
