Product Description

Step by Step approach to solving multi-step addition and subtraction story problems promoting independence and confidence. Students are guided through the CUBED story problem strategy and asked leading questions to help them succeed.

⭐❤️⭐ Try the FREE sample in the PREVIEW! Enjoy! ⭐❤️⭐

Teach students to UNDERSTAND HOW to solve the multi-step problem by breaking it down into steps.

Here is the recommended procedure:

1. Students follow the word problem solving acronym of CUBED. The letters of CUBED stand for:

C - Circle the numbers

U - Underline the question

B - Box the key words

E - Eliminate what you don’t need

D - Draw a picture.

2. Leading questions promote problem solving skills in a step-by-step manner to break down the problem into smaller, more manageable parts.

This packet aims to promote confidence and independence. Encourage your students to become active readers as they engage in the CUBED activities.

✴Ten worksheets & answer keys

✴A CUBED strategy poster

✴Mini-posters - small student-sized pocket posters

How to Use this Packet:

The addition and subtraction problems in this packet were developed to be fairly simple for the students to solve independently in order to lead to confidence and independence.

I like to use each page as either an in-class assignment, as part of a math center for guided math, or as a homework page. The pages do not all need to be completed on consecutive days. They could also be used as review to spiral back to skills previously taught.
