Counting On Word Problems

When students are learning early addition strategies, they may become familiar with interpreting numbers and groups of objects. Extend students with this worksheet of word problems promoting the counting on method.

Students will read the simple word problems, interpret the important information and then show their thinking and solve the problem.

An answer key is included with your download to help make marking a breeze!
