Do your students struggle to successfully set up and solve "Word Problems," "Story Problems" or "Real-World Problems?" Mine too! That's why I created this step-by-step process that lets my kids solve problems correctly every time...even on state assessments.

• Story Problem Success Smart Notebook Lesson. It includes a step-by-step interactive guide to solving any story problem. It includes practice problems for the four operations: add, subtract, multiply and divide.

• "The Five Steps to Story Problem Success" bookmarks. These include the five steps with abbreviated instructions/reminders for students. There are three colored bookmarks on one page. I print mine on cardstock and cut them out for students to keep in their desks.

• A worksheet that includes six story problems using the four operations.

Challenge your students to use equations to solve real-world story problems using these 5 Steps to Story Problem Success. This is a great tool to use and review before state assessments!
