Have you ever had trouble teaching your students the "STEPS to Solving Math Word Problems"? It can be difficult. My students and I came up with a cute strategy called "DUCKS".
D - Did you read the problem?
U - Underline the Question
C - Circle the Key or Clue Words
K - Knowing what operation (=,-,x, /) to use...
S - Show your work.
This worksheet allows the students to fill in each part of "DUCKS" as they are first learning this strategy.
