Word problems are probably the most challenging part of math for many students. This packet gives your students resources and specific steps to tackle those pesky word problems and practice decimal computation.
In this product, your students will get a handy dandy two-sided printable for solving math word problems, including a list of keywords to look for. You will also get a mini-poster of the possible strategies for solving word problems. I also discuss how to teach students a step-by-step process to solving any word problem.
You will also get a menu to Jose's Mexican Kitchen and 3 sets of word problems that go along with it. Students will use the menu to add, subtract, multiply, divide, and find percentages of decimals. One set involves one-step word problems and the other two sets involve two-step or multi-step word problems. So, this is great for differentiation or math centers!
Answer Keys are included, and I have also included a group activity to use with the menus that involves using Kagan's cooperative strategy of sending a problem.
