Product Description
I created these 2 resources as a tool for students to practice their problem-solving skills. The 12 word problems in each of these resources require students to either add or subtract. Both worksheets use the same word problems; however, the first worksheet requires students to read the problem and determine only HOW to solve. They will determine if they need to “combine”, “separate”, or “compare”. They will write either “combine”, “separate”, or “compare” in the blanks. They will not solve yet. This worksheet would be a great partner activity, so that students can talk out their thought process and help each other understand why they should solve in a certain way. The second worksheet contains the same exact word problems and requires students to actually solve, using the process (combine, separate, or compare) upon which they decided on the first worksheet. It also has a space for students to check their answers.

Problem-solving is always the most challenging aspect of math for my third graders, and this activity helps them see examples of each type of word problem and shows them how to recognize similarities and differences between each type.

I hope you find this resource helpful! Thank you for stopping by!
