Word Problems for Kindergarten Students!

This pack contains word problems with October/fall themes such as pumpkins, leaves, fire safety, scarecrows, candy corn, and more.

It was designed with early Kindergarten students in mind. There are no written equations in this set. Rather, this set focuses on beginning addition by listening, recording, and counting totals. Written Equations begin in a later set, as these packs are designed to progress over time as the students develop.

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:

When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.

Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
