Word Problems

I'm big on word problems, so much so that I created a pack of problems for my kids. We do a problem each and every day, week in, week out all year long. It started off, a few years back, as a way for me to help my kids with the kind of assessment we do where I teach. There were problems provided for us, but they were so generic and dull that I just couldn't get behind them. Plus the language used was often over my first graders' heads. So, little by little, I started making up my own problems and The Super Math Pack was born.
And here are my super workers in action

And a sample of the work
Like I said, I love word problems and my word problem family is growing cause I finally finished a pack that lasts all year. You can check it out here. Here is the rest of my word problem family.

I'd be happy to give any of the 3 packs to the first 3 people who leave a comment.

In other news, my friend Megan from I Teach What's Your Super Power is having a 500 follower giveaway, lots of great products including the pencil sharpener I love that won't ship to Canada (Waaaah!) Head over and check her out.
