Do you teach addition word problems? Generally, students like to add but they do not like those tricky word problems! A good strategy is to use addition words as clues for students to know which operation is involved. This free poster has addition words and phrases that are usually encountered in word problems. I must give credit to my principal, Mrs. Ann Benoit, for suggesting the phrase 'Increase by...', there are so many ways of saying 'add'! This poster is not only useful for your addition math center, it can be integrated with other subject areas; use as a word wall for reading and your synonym centers.
- Teacher Nyla
- As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
