Product Description
Do your students struggle to solve word problems? Is it possibly due to not knowing what operation to use? Do they forget what important math words mean? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this product is for you!
This product includes the following:
-Reference sheet with keywords and scenarios
-Reference sheet with only keywords
-Reference sheet with only scenarios
-3 versions of progress monitoring so you can rotate through them
-answer key

“What are word problem scenarios?” you might be wondering. They are the situations that math operations occur in. When we read a word problem, there may not be a keyword, but there is a situation or scenario that is happening. Based on what is happening, we can figure out what operation to use. For example, if Sue is cutting a 12 inch board into 3 equal pieces and wants to know how big each piece will be, she knows she needs to divide because she knows that cutting something into equal pieces indicates division.

Currently, there are not progress monitoring sheets based on the keywords included, but if you would like those included in this, let me know and I will make it happen.
