*Set of 10 Word Problems Differentiated into 5 Learning Levels Ready to Print
*Plus 10 Super Challenge Word Problems Ready to Print
Each Differentiated Problem is on an Organizer supporting the Common Core Math Practices that reminds children to:
• choose tools
• show work
• write equations
• share their reasoning with peers
This set of word problems is differentiated for your students in multiple ways. They may be used for a two week focused study on problem solving or as a once a week problem solving task for ten weeks.
First, each problem is offered in 3 scaffolded formats of support that lead students in the Common Core Math Practices and help emergent readers.
Next, the numbers are changed to offer 1 problem with simpler computations and 1 problem with more difficult computations and/or more steps.
Finally, a completely different super challenge problem is given which requires far more thinking, planning and working than all the others.
You just print the number of pages you need from each learning level and your students are all working at their highest potential at the same time. No students hollering that it is too hard for them to read or figure out and no students finishing way ahead of the others with nothing to do (those challenge problems could take them a while to complete).
Every student will be thinking, planning and sharing their reasoning as they move towards mastery of the Common Core Math Standards and Practices!!
