This file contains 36 multi-step word problems for math. One challenging word problem for every week of the school year! These are great for "close reading" to help the students understand the problem and steps needed to find the answer.
The word problems all require about 4 to 5 steps in order to get the answer. This is perfect to be done whole-class, small group, as a math center, or as problem solving. This is a great way to help get your students ready for PARCC!
Also, every word problem has a writing component that requires the students to analyze the problem rather than just explain what they did.
****Note: I sell this packet for grades 2-6. The word problems in each packet are the same, but the math required to solve the problems is different to meet the grade level standards.****
I also have a volume 2 for 5th grade with more word problems. It can be found here https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Challenging-Word-Problems-5th-Grade-Multi-Step-Volume-2-3522910
