Bright Ideas Math Blog Hop - FREEBIES Galore!!!!!

I'm excited to participate in my very first Blog Hop!!!!

While my "specialty" is reading, I've decided to participate in this hop as I think there's a very important part of math I can address... word problems. I see my third, fourth and fifth graders still struggling with this. I cannot tell you how many times I have to remind them to read the whole problem before they try to solve it. There's just something about mixing reading with math that gets kiddos super confused.

So I put together a little "freebie" for you... four very simple word problems that are geared towards beginning reading/math skills and don't go any higher than a sum of five. Read them to your class, write them on the board or use them in small groups. This may even be something you want to send home so parents can practice with their kiddos. It's important to get them thinking outside of simple addition of numbers and begin thinking about real life situations where math comes in to play.

So, without any further adieu, here is my "Word Problem FREEBIE". Click on the picture, download, print and enjoy! And be sure to check out the other products in my store. They have all been helpful for me and I'm sure they'll help you, too!
