This set of printable word problems contains three different levels:
Level 1: Beginning - these students are just beginning to work with numbers and need clear visuals (0-10)
Level 2: Intermediate - these students are comfortable reading word problems and applying the skill, but cannot work with too large of a number (0-25)
Level 3: Advanced - these students are comfortable working with more complex numbers (0-100)
There are four different word problems, each with three levels. I use one each week in my class (Word Problem Wednesdays). The kids love how they are open ended - there are virtually hundreds of correct answers!
These word problems are themed around January, but can be used at any time of the year.
