All of the word problems for the week are on one page.
I use the first month of school to really set the expectations and model for the students what I expect when they are solving word problems (read more about how we show the love with word problems here).
Just put your email address in the box below and the starter packs (both Set A and Set B) will be sent to your inbox!
Once you finish with the starter packs, I have grade level sets available for purchase so you can continue your word problem of the day routine all year.
It will frustrate them and take away from the focus.
For that reason, I use these word problem of the day starter packs that contain skills from the previous grade level.And it is so important that when teaching expectations and modeling a process, you use review skills that the students are already familiar with and have achieved mastery with.It is incredibly difficulty to try and teach students how you want them to solve a word problem using a math skill that they have not mastered yet.Reinforce arithmetic and problem-solving skills with real-life word problems involving units of measure. As your students become more familiar with identifying operations for each equation the problems, like in this worksheet, become more complicated.Students choose the operation—subtraction, addition, multiplication, or division—to solve each problem; they should be familiar with the metric system and the U. Test students' problem-solving skills with word problems involving mixed operations.In this worksheet your student must decide what operation they will use to save the word problem. Have your students solve these real life word problems by reading the sentence and applying the correct operation.Students must decide which operation to use—addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division—to solve these real-life word problems involving units of measure.Students will practice multiplying by three-digit and four-digit numbers.This worksheet gives students practice subtracting decimals in money and units of measure through a mix of vertical subtraction, horizontal subtraction, and word problems.This game requires the utilization of several math skills: mixed numbers/improper fractions, equivalent fractions, metric conversions, exponents, rounding to the nearest thousands and thousandths and place value.  SEE MORE You will use your problem solving skills for this test.Each word problem will require you to use a different operation.
