The story problem task cards offer important word problem practice and reinforcement for 4th and 5th grade. The unique multi-problem approach to each story reinforces multiple skills and math relevance.
Kids in grade 4, grade 5 engage in challenging math stories that each require the solution to multiple problems. They must use comprehension skills and then apply their math understanding to pull relevant information and use multi-steps in order to arrive at the correct solution. Some skills addressed in the word problems include perimeter, adding, multiplying, money, squaring, decimals, subtracting, dividing, time, percent, measurement, fractions.
These task card activities are great for whole groups, small groups, individuals, centers, and homework applications. The activities can be used effectively as a math assessment tool. Pages in the packet can be printed either in color or grayscale with good results. These activities are effective as homeschool or summer practice resources. Each task card has a QR code for immediate feedback. Full detailed answer keys are also provided.
A math word problem worksheet format is also available:
