Numberless Word Problems are a great way to work on problem solving skills with your students. They encourage your students to ask questions and think carefully about what the problems are asking you to solve. Throughout the slideshow, more information is released and the class can write down, or the students can type what questions they are wondering or ideas they have. They also have movable pieces to help solve the problems from these slides.
These 6 different google slides can be used as a whole class on the smart board or projector, or students can do them individually on google slides on the iPad or computer. You could even make a copy for each student to assess their answers.

Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from
K.OA.A.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
K.OA.A.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
K.OA.A.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
K.OA.A.4 For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
