Hi everyone! I have a super fun math activity for you – Math Centers: Word Problems for August! It is similar to the Math Word Problem worksheet pack, but created for use as a center activity! So let’s get stuck into it!
The Math Centers: Word Problems for August packet contains 4 sets of addition and subtraction math word problem activities. Each activity has a colorful printable main activity card with matching cut-out manipulatives. There are also 4 worded addition problem cards and 4 worded subtraction problem cards alongside a recording page for each. Students use the recording page to show their working out. These are suitable for Grade 1 – Grade 2 students and even children in Kindergarten who are able to read.
Children are to read the word problem from the word problem cards (which are numbered at the top to show which card they complete on the recording page). Next they can use the provided printable activity page and manipulatives to work out the math problem. Finally, they can use the recording page to show working out of the answer. Children show their working out using several methods: in picture form, counting cubes to color or cross out, a ten frame, number line, equation writing and final written answer.
This activity is great for centers. Children can work on them individually, in pairs and even in a small group.
Other manipulatives can be included to promote further learning for your children. Things like counting cubes, marbles, matchsticks, coins etc. help your children to visualize the math problem in a concrete manner to support their working out.
