These are open-ended word problems that I use about once a week just to expand my students thinking and to see how they go about solving the problems. I've found them to be really helpful getting students ready for the common core.
These befuddle and stretch students to be creative in math!
I think these are useful common core worksheets to supplement any math teachers program. If you find them useful, please comment and follow and if there is interest I will happily make more.
I know that a lot of my colleagues are looking for quality common core worksheets.
