  • Multi-step contextual problems including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Interpreting factors, products, dividends, divisors and quotients
  • Solving contextual problems involving the four operations including interpreting remainders
  • Fluently adding and subtracting within 10,000
  • Multiplying one-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10
  • Solve contextual problems involving multiplicative comparison
  • Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by one-digit whole numbers and multiply two two-digit numbers
  • Find whole number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors

There are 2 versions of the project, designed to be differentiated for your class and to help scaffold students towards independent problem solving. Each version is 28 pages and includes 5 different parts of planning the party (each part includes 8-11 questions on over 4 pages for each part)!

  • Problem Solving Support: The first version (pages 6-34), includes story problem solving graphic organizers for each problem to help scaffold your students towards solving the single and multi-step story problems. This version is great for your students that need to practice fluency and need support making story problems more accessible.
  • Independent Problem Solving: The second version (pages 35-63), does not include the graphic organizers so students need to interpret the problems themselves. This provides a more challenging opportunity for students to determine the steps to solve each problem. This is great for your students who are fluent in their facts but need to work on interpreting story problems independently.
