Writing Center using Stamps for Creative Stories and Math Word Problems (includes FREEBIE)

I just LOVE the Dollar Tree! I went in to get 2 items and came out with way too much stuff. Check out these cute stamps! I could not resist the temptation to purchase these for my writing center. I bought a set for spring, ocean, zoo and princess themes.
I put them in my writing center and my kindergarten students went crazy. They absolutely love these stamps! We discussed creating stories after stamping their picture and creating addition or subtraction word problems after stamping their picture.

I thought this student did an excellent job of writing an addition word problem to match her picture. "I picked up four flowers for my mom and I found four more flowers. How many flowers do I have in all? I have eight flowers in all."
I can't wait to see what else they create using these stamps. I've got to get me some more stamp pads.
Here is a subtraction word problem FREEBIE to help get your students ready to write their own word problems.
Here's a few more addition and subtraction word problems you may like!
I hope you find something useful!
Thanks for stopping by!
