Word Problems

First graders have been working very hard on story problems recently. The newest challenge has been having to decipher whether the problem involves addition or subtraction to solve.  To help us out, we started charting some of the key words that would help us know which operation is being called for. We have also been discussing the idea of subtraction as being "the difference between" and not just "take away".  Super mathematical thinkers!
