Could you ask me a math word problem question?
What operation will it involve? (adding or subtracting?)
If your story is about cookies going into the jar, then you would be adding (+) and if the cookies are leaving the jar, then you would be subtracting (-).
1. Tell a story about what is happening to the cookies.
2. Now ask your question like "how many do you have left?" or "how many do you have all together?"
3. Solve the problem with numbers and words because you already have the picture.
