Do your students have difficulty choosing the correct operation when solving word problems? This word problem sort can be used as a math center to provide extra practice with these skills. It includes addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. There are 8 sorts in each file (24 different sorts in all) providing opportunities for growth and differentiation.
During each activity, students cut out and sort word problems by the operation needed to solve them. Then they glue the problems on a T-chart (created on construction paper) and solve each problem.
This file contains 3 word problem sorts at a discounted bundle price.
1. Add or Subtract?
2. Add or Multiply?
3. Multiply or Divide?
***These are also sold separately in my store. Each also has a free sample. Click here

There are student directions, word problems and an answer key for each one. I have also included teacher directions and suggestions for modifying the activities for different groups.
This could be completed at once using the different sorts as different levels and assigning students a sort based on their needs. I allow about 45 minutes for students to complete one sort.
