Word Problem Wednesday is something that I started doing at the beginning of the school year. I found that my students were struggling with word problems, so I began practicing each Wednesday. For each word problem, I require students to show their work and explain with words how they arrived at the solution. I have found that my students are more capable of answering extended response questions since implementing the weekly practice.
This edition focuses on fractions and meets many of the Common Core Standards in the fraction domain for fourth grade. I have included 12 problems so that you may pick and choose which ones work best for your class.
