Product Description
This word search pack is called Mastering Multi Step Word Problems {Helping Kids Learn to THINK}. What is the purpose of this multi-step word problem pack? To aide in the problem solving thinking process when solving multi-step word problems. It should be suitable for 4th and 5th grade to help them think about and solve multi-step word problems.

========================
Perfect for math centers!**

========================

Let's face it, teaching problem solving skills can be difficult. :-) If your students are like mine, they sometimes don’t even know where to begin when solving multi-step word problems. I have created these multi-step problems with guided thinking questions that will hopefully help your students ‘train their brain’ in order to learn how to eventually solve multi-step problems on their own. The assignments transition from easier multi-step questions with guiding questions, to more difficult questions with guiding questions, to multi-step questions without questions. Once they get to the last ten problems, you should hopefully be able to simply pass them out and they would solve the problems on paper. Hopefully by the end, you can celebrate their improved problem solving skills!!

Feel free to use these word problems in your classroom however you see fit. Here are some possible ways to use them:
**use as a whole class every now and then
**use them as a progressive word problem unit
use them for differentiation, as there are different difficulty levels
**Use in a weekly math center
**Use one a week throughout the school year
**So many more uses

In my classroom, I would plan to use them every Monday as part of an intro lesson called “Multi-Step Mondays”. I will start off using problems1-10, one each week. Problems 1-10 are a tad easier than 11-20. The students will solve them and we will check it together as a class. We will progress through the problems doing one a week for 30 weeks. Once the kids have solved several of each level of each card, I feel they are suitable for a grade, especially when you get to cards 11-20.

It is my hope that these cards will help students ‘see’ and begin to understand the process in solving multi-step word problems, that you will be able to see huge improvements in their ability to problem solve. After all, solving multi-step word problems shouldn't be a MONSTER!
