A set of 15 match-up cards to scaffold work with addition word problems.
Use this activity when introducing skills in solving addition word problems.
Rather than simply matching answers to worded problems, this match-up activity scaffolds the process. Students find graphic representations to match each problem. The representations include:
- number lines
- ten frames
- addition number sentences.
Because there are 30 puzzle pieces (15 addition problems), this could be used as a whole class activity where each student finds their match-up partner and justifies their reasoning. You could also put this into your math center for independent practice.
Print these on cardstock for added durability.
