This Word Problem Kit includes 22 fill-in-the-blank Addition & Subtraction Word Problems that can be personalized! Every problem can be used with any size/type of number.  The included bookmark number guides give suggestions for using the word problems with numbers 0-10, 0-20, 0-50, 0-100, 0-1,000, decimals and fractions.  This is a fun way to create a Problem of the Day that uses exactly the type of number you are working with in your current unit of study.  The word problems are also excellent to use at a Problem Solving Math Station.

This resource made problem solving instruction so much easier in my classroom!

  • I was able to use the problems with different sized numbers for each group to meet student needs.
  • I didn’t have to search for new word problems when my students progressed from whole numbers to decimals to fractions.
  • I could repeat problem types to help students learn how to solve similar word problems and correctly represent those situations in strip diagrams.
  • I could easily motivate my students by picking the numbers and letting each of them select their own names and items to complete the problems.
