Spooky Story Problems
This week we have been working on "Spooky Story Problems." First we practiced coming up with addition and subtraction story problems with Halloween foam characters. Then, each child created their own problem and wrote it down in their math notebook. After editing their work, the students re-wrote their problem on an index card and flipped it over to write their answer. Next, after reviewing the concept of a setting, students created a Halloween setting for their problem on their paper. Next, they stuck their Halloween characters onto their setting and I helped tape their problem. I will be hanging these in the hall later this week. When you stop by, see if you can solve the Spooky Story Problems!
