Looking for more practice with word problems for your fifth graders? Let’s face it, many of our students have a hard time figuring out which operation(s) word problems are asking them to do. I’ve found I can never have enough word problems on hand for them to practice with.
In this download there are a mixture of 30 task cards containing word problems with mixed operations as well as a mixture of single step and multi-step. (Numbers are geared more toward 5th grade level but can work great for higher 4th graders too).
Students will also have to interpret remainders and need to know how to multiply decimals (only to the hundredths place). All questions are open-ended.All you need to do is print, cut, laminate and shuffle cards. Then the options are endless:
•Have your students complete the cards at a center and record their answers on the recording key provided. Or get up and move by placing them around the room and playing a game of SCOOT.
•Use as a ticket out the door, picking one out of the stack to complete as a quick check or spiral throughout the year.
•Assign a sheet for homework for the night.
•Even use as an assessment or intervention tool
•Great for fast finishers too!
This mixture of task cards is perfect for centers, independent practice, small group work, intervention or just as a spiral review game. Two options for a recording sheet for students is provided. Choose which one best fits your students’ needs. Answer key for teacher quick check or student self-check is included as well.
