Product Description

These engaging third grade math word problems are written in the form of a text and require critical thinking, problem solving, and written responses from your students. Text problems cover a variety of skills including working with estimation, elapsed time, multiplication, and division.

Written in a text format is not only engaging for students, but also requires students to write their mathematical solution in written form to reply to the text they were sent. These problems come in two formats. One with open space for students to organize their own work, and the second with four boxes to help students complete each step in a different box, labeling as they solve.

Great for group discussions and independent work, too!

Update: Blank templates are now included for students to create their own word problems. These are NOT editable files, but blank templates for students to hand write in their own word problems for their peers to solve.

NOTE: Word problems were created for third graders and could possibly work as a challenge for second graders depending on the level of your students' abilities.


✓10 Math Word Problem Sheets in Text Form (in two different formats)

✓Answer Key included
