Have you read the new children’s book, Pigeon Math, to your students yet? It’s a playful narrative about pigeons that incorporates basic addition and subtraction facts. This resource is a companion and integrates math using silly, pigeon-themed word problems! There are 10 problems, and each problem comes with two student pages, allowing you to differentiate for your learners.

You DO NOT need the book in order to use this resource.

Included In This Resource:
– Ten addition word problems
– The problems are a mix of question types (add to/result unknown, add to/change unknown, add to/start unknown, compare/bigger unknown). There is a question guide that breaks down each type of question.
– Two versions for each word problem. Each student page has different strategies for addition. (Number bonds, number tape, make a ten, number path, and several more)
– Answer keys for every page
