Practice writing word problems with this fun farm problem solving set.
This is another free resource for teachers from The Curriculum Corner.
Use this activity to help your students practice writing their own word problems.
This set has been created to help you work with your students on writing word problems.
This will be a best fit for second grade classrooms.
Within this writing work problems set
We have included a range of problem writing pages so you can pick which is best for your class or each student – an easy way to differentiate!
Print the directions page and animal cards on heavy card stock and laminate for durability.
(We have provided a directions page for your center in full color and with a basic white background in case you need to conserve ink.)
Extend the learning by having students trade and solve problems.
You will find two recording pages for students to use to solve the problems of their classmates.
Setting up your center
We envision this activity being used after you have worked on helping students identify clue words in word problems and after students have had practice solving word problems.
You can also differentiate this activity by printing more than one farm animal page.
Make sure the number of animals you offer give your students a challenge!
Be sure to start with completing a sample as a class so students are aware of your expectations.
