This set of 20 winter word problems help practice money and division word problems in a real world, meaningful way.

15 of the problems involve “fact family” numbers or “doubling”. The 5 “starred” problems ask students to reach one level beyond basic facts but can still easily by modeled with manipulatives or drawings. A task card answer key and student worksheet is included.

Table 2 at the end of the Math Standards gives clear examples of types of problems that students should have experience solving. This set of problems help provide students with that experience.

Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
