***Multi-Step Word Problem Sort Activity***
This activity is to help students recognize when a problem is going to require more than one step. They are given choices of addition, subtraction, or using both operations in the same problem. Then they will practice problem-solving multi-step word problems.
Teaching students to solve multistep word problems can be challenging for many reasons! A common mistake is for students to see numbers in the problem and just add. It can be a tough job to get them to read carefully and think about what the question is REALLY asking them to do. This product helps with that!
Each of the problems has *hint* words underlined to help them make a decision about which operation(s) they will need to choose.
The first day you use this activity, the children will just be sorting the problems. The point is for them to focus on deciding a plan of action for the problem, not worry about solving the problems just yet.
The next day (or later in small group), the children will then practice solving the problems.
Included in this product is:
*Color and black/white versions of the fronts of the pockets
*Nine sorting cards (best if printed on cardstock)
*Worksheet to practice the problems.
*Answer key to the sort
*Answer key to the worksheet
*Higher-level children may be able to work on their own
*Lower-level children can be given the operations needed and can work on solving
*highlight key words
*children can make up their own problems and have a partner sort
