It's still summer and the words
"Common Core" are constantly running through my head! I created a
word problem pack directly aligned to the second grade common core standards.
Click on the picture (above) to grab these word problems! I am so excited about
this pack because it includes over 80 word problems that cover the following
standards:

CCSS. Math. Content.2.OA.B.2 (Add and Subtract within 20)

CCSS. Math. Content.2.OA.A.1/2.NBT.B.5

(Add and Subtract within 100 with and without regrouping)

CCSS. Math. Content.2.OA.A.1/2.NBT.B.5

(Add and Subtract within 100—two steps)

CCSS. Math. Content.2.NBT.B.6

(Add up to four two-digit numbers)

CCSS. Math. Content.2.NBT.B.6

(Add and Subtraction within 1000)

I use word problems daily during Guided Math. This would be the “Story Problem” rotation. You can grab my Guided Math Rotation Board here:

My word problems are almost always correlated with the standard being taught at the time. This allows for the students to apply their learning to a higher level activity. For example, when doing a unit on two digit addition, the word problems will also be on two digit addition.

Each student has a math journal. Students will glue these pre-cut word problems into their math journals and will either draw or glue in the word problem 4 square(picture below)

Here is an example of a completed square.

I usually have students work on word problems with a partner or in a group of 3. This gives them a chance to talk about their math and gain ideas on different ways/strategies of attacking the word problem.

I have also used these word problems as part of my small group (Meet with the Teacher rotation) during Guided Math.

These word problems can also be used in a whole group setting, as a daily math warm-up, or with parent volunteers.

Be on the look out for my other word problem packs that cover second grade math!

Happy Teaching!
