Wednesday Word Problems are a GREAT way to get students solving word problems consistently and routinely.
Each problem comes in 2 forms- half sheet and whole sheet. To save paper, my advice is to pick the 4 prompts you want to use and copy front to back to make problem solving books for each student. The half sheets can be copied front to back and cut in half to make 2 books.
The May resource includes 5 problems. The problems are themed for Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day, Mother's Day and Spring!
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations
Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
