This is a chart I use in my classroom. This has helped my students solve word problems. I will not accept their answer if they haven't done all 7 steps. It has helped get rid of careless errors made by the students. Each student has one in their math journal and I have one big chart in the classroom as well.
I have attached it as a Word document so if you wish to change a word or two, feel free. I have four in the document so you can print four to a page for journal use.
This chart aligns with third grade specific standards below and CCSS word problem related standards.
FL Standard- MAFS.3.OA.4.8
