year 1 addition word problems

Overall rating 4 out of 54.8 (36 ratings)

3 short word problems in which the children have to decide what calculation they need to make. I originally used the name of my teaching assistants, but have changed here, you’ll probably want to change the text here. Also, the sound effects on the second problem only work on my computer, sorry about that!
