This is a collection of 12 fun and engaging Thanksgiving and November themed CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction) MULTI-STEP math word problems that are great for upper second graders, all third graders, fourth graders, and fifth graders. The problems are formatted in two ways. First, there are 6 worksheets with 2 different problems per page. There is a place for students to show their work and write their answer. Second, there are pages with 10 of the same problem per page if you wanted to print them and have students glue the problem in their math journal or notebook.
The problem types include some division or fair share problems, multiplication problems, join result unkown (adding) problems, and seperate result unknown (subtraction). They allow for a variety of solution strategies which will result in a rich discussion as students justify their answers and communicate their strategies; which meets the needs of the Common Core. There are images that coordinate with each problem which helps students who might need a vocabulary visual, and it also makes the problems more engaging and inviting.
