Using a number line is an effective strategy for new mathematicians. This brightly colored free downloadable worksheet will give your young math student practice using a number line with the intent of later automaticity, and they'll be able to successfully solve basic addition and subtraction word problems as they count on or count back. They'll work on cementing those facts in their brains for later efficiency when adding and subtracting.
Being able to visualize what is happening in a word problem is an important element in solving them. That's why this fun and engaging PDF worksheet is a great way to get your mathematician to create familiar pictures in their heads using facts from number stories. Then, they'll be able to check boxes by equations that appropriately match the math facts, and gain confidence in solving basic addition word problems.
Let your little mathematician visualize the number story that involves Sandy's sweets! Being able to create connections and pictures in their head is a first step for new math learners when it comes to solving word problems and this engaging downloadable worksheet gives them practice in doing so. Once they've put the picture in their heads, they'll be able to use the math facts to solve for the sums, and then identify the appropriate number sentences to match the story.
