Math Worksheets: Word Problems for August

Hi everyone 🙂 I have put together a super fun workbook for your kiddos to get stuck into math word problems. This work book contains 32 addition and subtraction math word problem activity sheets. They are color, cut and paste worksheets which your children will love! These are suitable for Kindergarten (Prep) and Grade 1 students. Simply print the pages you wish to use, grab some pencils, scissors and glue and you’re set to go for a good math lesson!  Children are required to use their reading and comprehension skills to read the math word problem on the top of the page and use the pictures along the bottom to cut and paste accordingly to work out the math problem correctly. The use of a tens frame, number line and counting cubes are there to show the working out through different number representations and working out methods. The children will have the opportunity to write their answer as a mathematical numeral equation and also as a written word answer.  You may discuss the word terminology used here that represent each addition and subtraction in this activity so they can have a better understanding beforehand.   For example: Addition- ‘How many altogether?’. Subtraction- ‘How many left?’ Math word problems are a great way to expand cognitive development through use of numbers and words. By connecting both literacy and numeracy in one activity, it enhances their cognitive skills which will benefit them over the years in life.   If your kiddos are beginners and struggle to understand the word math problem; ask them to read through it carefully then to re-read and circle the numbers they see and the important key words that will help them figure out which way they have to problem solve by adding or subtracting (altogether/more/on/give) or (left/ less/take/off etc). This will help guide them to a better understanding of how a word problem works. The more practice they get reading it and giving it a go to connect it to a mathematical equation, the better they will get at it. To extend the activity, you could also provide the children with a physical manipulative (like counting cubes) for them to get a hands-on visualization of their problem solving. This is great for their fine motor development but also for their mathematical skill development as they make the connection between written word maths problems with different working out strategies to find out the answer.

Clip It: Colors / Colours

Hello! I wanted to share with you all new resource I literally just posted on TpT. I created this packet as an add on to my Kindergarten Morning Tubs Set 1 and, for a limited time, this packet is HALF PRICE!

Included are: 40 cards with 2 color options, 40 cards with 3 color options, 40 cards with 4 color options, 40 cards with 5 color options and 40 cards with 6 color options. All together, there are 200 cards. To prepare the cards for use, laminate each printed page for durability and re-use and then cut along the dotted lines. The cards in this packet have been designed to be stored as sets on key rings and for that reason, each card has a hole-punching mark. Materials needed: household pegs Children will identify the colors in the picture, clipping a peg to show their answers. Each card has one color that is not included in the picture. To make this activity self-checking, place an X sticker (or write with a marker) on the reverse side of the card on the back of the incorrect color. Happy Teaching 🙂 If you would like to purchase this resource, please click here or on the image below. Click here for other CLIP IT!... read more

August Writing Picture Prompts

Hi everyone! Since we are following through on the theme of August, I have put together a package of picture writing prompts. Included is 25 work pages and 1 additional handwriting lined page. This workbook is suitable for children of Kindergarten age, Grade 1 and Grade 2. These picture pages are great for beginner writers to get some practice writing by looking at a visual to provide inspiration. The goal of using picture prompts is to help kiddos come up with a written piece by examining an image to construct a written text. It enables them to write something inspired just from what they see. They are better than just saying “write about your weekend”. Sometimes writing recounts or information reports become very boring and some will lose interest in writing. But this method allows creativity, imagination and freedom. It also encourages sentence structure as they try to put their ideas together to tell a little bit of their inspiration. For some kiddos this will be very fun, for some a little stressful if they do not know where to begin. The word lists on the side will come in super handy to jumpstart the writing process where a few key words that come to mind about the image can be written there. You can choose these key words together if the children are still not sure what to say about it and need a little more prompting. A single picture could be interpreted and described in so many different ways and each person will come up with something different to write about it. That is the beauty of using picture prompts. Not one writing piece for the same picture will be the same. Some children enjoy visual aids and would find these beneficial to use as a starting point for a writing piece. You can encourage the children to be as creative as they like in their writing. Each picture prompt page can be coloured in and kiddos can use their chosen colours as part of their description in their story. Overall, I am sure that your kiddos will really enjoy using these picture prompts in a classroom setting, group time, or even for individual learning. It really is all about encouraging them to keep writing. So, happy teaching! 🙂 If you’d like to purchase this resource, please CLICK HERE or on the image below.
