We all know how difficult it can be to solve one or two-step word problems!! This check list will help students organize their ideas and then step-by-step set up and solve the problem. It uses kid-friendly terms and includes some small graphics to help students. It is wonderful for students of all grade levels!
There are two per sheet!
1. Read the entire problem
2. Rewrite the question in sentence form
(ex. Sally had ______ skittles.)
3. Picture the problem
(Am I finding the part or whole?
What operation should I use?)
4. Set up and solve the problem
5. Check your answer and make sure that all of your work is shown!
**REUSABLE SOURCE! Can be cut out and laminated. Students can use white board markers/erasers to check off and reuse the list when they are finished!
