This is a set of 20 two-step word problems involving addition & subtraction for third graders. While trying to teach and assess this standard I struggled with finding two step word problems so I started to create my own!!!
This packet was designed to slow students down and truly analyze one word problem each day. With the CCSS 3.OA.8, students should be able to write an equation representing a situation using a variable, assess the reasonableness of an answer, and last but not least…solve two-step word problems. These pages are designed to encourage students to do all of this!
These can be used for students to complete independently, with a partner, or a cooperative learning group. You should use them in the way that best fits for your classroom! Here are some ideas:

Caution: These problems may prove to be quite challenging for your students. If they are not accustomed to challenges, they will need plenty of reassurance that it is okay to have cognitive struggle.
