Help children develop the skills necessary to solve word problems by exposing them to practice, practice and more practice. This activity is tiered for more practice in the beginning and continued independent practice towards the end. This activity includes single and double digit addends and allows children to think critically for each problem.

** While my number choices may not be perfect for all levels of students in every class, I have included the fill in the blank version for the independent practice sheets so you can modify the numbers in the problems to suit ALL students. The 'choose your own number' option allows for a wider range of learners and grade levels.**

**Click here for a similar product which contains word problems for January to June.**

Review/Beginning Word Problem Practice allow for children to read the problem, sort and glue them into the appropriate method to solve the problem by looking for the key words. Then, children receive the worksheets to solve the actual problem. They can use their sorting sheet as a reminder to either add or subtract.

1 addition/subtraction keyword sort to help children look for the keywords to decide whether to add or subtract.

2 addition/subtraction sorting mats

2 sets of cut and paste problems

4 pages of problems (same as the problems sorted)

Independent problem solving worksheets have three problems to a page and include the problem solving steps as a reminder. They are themed as follows for fall/winter:

2 themed for fall sports
2 themed for Halloween
1 themed for Election Day
1 themed for Thanksgiving
1 themed for winter
1 themed for winter holidays
1 create your own word problem sheet (for you to create future problems)
