Last week I shared my Addition Word Problems packet- today I am back to share with you some awesome Subtraction Word Problems packet! I am really loving this extension of simple addition and subtraction. I am loving how it is making Greyson think about what information he needs from the word problem- in order to be able to solve it.
I am enjoying having him work on drawing the math problem, and the use of the number line.
In this download I am including 12 free Subtraction Word Problem pages.
How It Works-
- Read the short word problem to your child. You may need to read it twice – to ensure they fully understand what you are asking…. especially if this is one of the first times they are solving a word problem.
- Have them draw a picture of the word problem
- Use the number line as another way to solve the problem AND as a way to double check their answer
- Write the math equation
- Finally in the dotted circle have your child / student write their final answer!
