I created these flash cards for review for my 5th grade students, but many of them apply to 3rd and 4th grade problem solving as well. These are also great for middle school students who struggle with solving word problems.
My students were having a difficult time remembering which key word in a word problem indicates which operation. After allowing 10-15 minutes a day for the last few days, they are much more proficient as a class. I thought I would share this resource here.
I grouped them in 3 levels:
Level 1: Words to Operations
Level 2: Words to Numbers...simple operations
Level 3: Words to Numbers...more complex sentences including parentheses
There are 96 flashcards in total. Simply fold each page vertically down the center line, then cut along the black lines to separate the cards. Laminate them for best results and longevity. :)
