Friends~If you are looking for ways to help your students with solving word problems, this product is it! With this 43 page file you will be able to introduce one stepper and 2 stepper problems easily. You will receive my CLOSE Reading bookmarks that will help your students underline, circle, and plan a strategy to solve.
