This packet was aligned with the Common Core Standards. It was created to use with students to practice reading word problems and using problem solving strategies. Students will work in small groups to decide which operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division) they should use in order to solve each of 25 word problems. Some problems include extra information that isn't needed in order to solve the problem. Students will record the operation that they used and show their work on how they solved the problem. Also included is teacher/student key word charts, a C.U.B.E problem solving strategy poster and an answer key. If you purchase this and you would like it as a word document, I will be more than happy to email it to you.
