Addition/Subtraction Word Problem Games


 I created these addition and subtraction games to help my students with word problems.  This seems to be such a difficult concept for my little firsties!  We are going to start with a word problem sort.  I am going to have the kids practice searching for key words and underline them in either green for addition or red for subtraction.  This way the strategy that they need to use will be more visible.  This will go with our previous Gus the Plus and Linus the Minus activities that we did.  Then the students can sort the word problems by addition or subtraction and solve the equations!

After practice with several sorts, there is a word problem scoot game that I created.  My kiddos love playing scoot and I hope that they will love this one.  I love that with this game I can get them to do 20 math problems without griping because they get to sit in one another's seats!


Enjoy!

  1. How do you address missing addend type problems like "There were 7 monkeys in the tree and some more came over, now there are 10, how many came over?"

    Do those get sorted into addition or subtraction? There are many problems like this that can be solved using either operation. I am curious how other teachers address this!!!!

    1. Good question. I think I would consider that a subtraction question....how many more monkeys came over to make 10. They have to use subtraction to solve. I think the fact that we teach addition and subtraction in so many forms and as being dependent on one another (virtually the same skill) makes it even more difficult for kids to decide what strategy they need to use to solve.
