This is a literature-based math lesson on the story, Santa's New Suit by Laura Rader. Tie math concepts back to real life (or fiction-life) situations! Students love when math lessons are connected back to stories!
I've included 2 forms that each have 6 different word problems that require multiplication and division to solve. One form includes quantities and the other form has blanks for you to create your own quantities. This allows for differentiation or for you to purposefully chose certain numbers to promote various multiplication and division strategies.
