Included in this booklet:
20 math word problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division)
One page for students to create their own word problem
Print this out for students to use in small groups, whole class, or on their own.
Students will learn to break word problems apart by using the strategy CUBES. They will be able to decide what information is important, and what should be left out.
I suggest modeling how to do the first two problems with the class. Use colored pencils or crayons. Circle, underline, box, and eliminate the information with the designated colors.
The “solve” is black seeing as we want the students to do the math in pencil in case they make mistakes.
You can print the notebook out in full pages or in a booklet form on Adobe.
