We often mistakenly believe that word problems are a challenge for students, however when presented 1 problem at a time, the challenge seems feasible. As students become comfortable with 1 word problem at a time, start offering 2 problems at a time! Word problems are much more exciting than 'drill and kill' worksheets and they provide a reason for learning computation processes. Before you know it - students will be requesting word problems, because they are much more fun!
I hope you and your students enjoy these as much as my students. Thanks for stopping by my store, Mary Alice Hatchett
