Remember last week (here) ? Here comes our second picture ! Invite your child to invent a word problem that matches the drawing.
Here are a few examples:
- There were 12 penguins on the ice, 4 penguins in the water, and 1 penguin jumping out of the water. How many penguins were there all together? (12 + 4 + 1 = 17)
- There were 15 penguins on the ice. 3 jumped in the water. How many penguins were left on the ice? (15 – 3 = 12)
- There were 4 penguins in the water. Each penguin ate 5 fish. How many fish did the penguins eat all together? ( 4 x 5 = 20)
- There were 16 eggs. There were 2 eggs under each penguin. How many penguins were seating on eggs ? (16 ÷ 2 = 8)
Until next time !
