Perfect for morning work with no prep! Review word problems and your expectations for solving them. Based on Common Core third grade standards, these problem solving tasks are great for morning work. Have them ready to go on your Smart Board when your kids enter your room. Also use them for Math Workshop, small group RtI, and homework. They are fun while still being purposeful, effective, and rigorous. They will give your students that much needed review and practice at the beginning of the year. Each problem requires students to use equations, visual representations, and words. At the bottom of each page, student's write a short explanation that will "Convince Me" that their answer is correct.

“Why you'll L-O-V-E IT! Feedback”

• Fun way to get students thinking and practicing problem solving strategies. –Diane

• We recently switched math series in my district, and this product is helping me to bridge some gaps for my students. I love that each page has plenty of space for students to respond. Excellent product! –Fourth Grade Frenzy

• I teach special education in 4th grade, and I really like how these word problems are challenging, but not too difficult. Exactly what I was looking for! –Megan

• These word problems have been my "go-to" for review in small groups. –Gina

• Great way to get their brains thinking again at the beginning of the year! -Karen

Included are:

♦ Three posters of different essential questions so you can choose the question that best meets the needs of your class.
♦ A poster that lists some of the Common Core skills that students will be using to solve each problem.
