This 5 minute Word Problem Type video is designed to introduce each word problem type (joining, separating, part-part-whole, and compare) to your students in a quick and easy way.
THIS VIDEO INCLUDES…
simple animations and a clear narration to describe each problem type.
2 examples of each problem type. The first example is a picture animation with a narrated description. The second example is a picture animation with a little more detailed narrated description and a matching equation.
an Act It Out activity for each problem type that engages students in simple hand motions to illustrate each addition and subtraction problem type.
This video will help you introduce addition and subtraction word problem types to your students in a fun and engaging way. The video was specifically designed for young learners; it’s clear, concise, and engaging.
A few years ago our students struggled significantly with solving math word problems. They were expected to solve joining, separating, part-part-whole, and compare problems but had no idea how to tackle them. They usually just added numbers together. As we researched some teaching tips, we learned that many children need to be taught the characteristics of each addition and subtraction problem type. That’s when we decided to create this video. We wanted an easy and engaging way to introduce students to the word problem types they’d be learning throughout the year.
THIS RESOURCE IS HELPFUL FOR:
- Busy First Grade and Kindergarten Teachers
- Special Education Teachers
- Whole Group Math Instruction
- Small Group Math Instruction
Should the video be shown all at once?
Yes, it’s designed to be an introduction to all four math word problem types students will be learning throughout the year. However, as you teach a specific type of problem, you can always replay that portion of the video to help clarify which type they are learning about.
Can I download the video to my computer?
Yes, you can download the video file to your computer.
Any tips on how to use the video most effectively?
One idea is to play the video straight through the first time. Then play it again, pausing at different points to further discuss (or, by popular demand, to act out the problem type again).
Wishing you joyful engagement in your primary classroom!
