I made these to help my students learn the common action words that tell what operation to use when solving word problems. Students should cut on the dashed lines, fold the strip on the solid line, and glue the two halves together. My students kept theirs in a baggy at their desks, but I also made a set for myself and laminated it. My kids have gained a ton of confidence by learning this vocabulary, and they're actually attempting to try to solve word problems now!
I used this tool in conjunction with a unit on using the CUBES method while solving word problems. They're great for partner practice, small groups, and games as a whole group!
