Mastering word problems has never been easier!
Develop problem-solving strategies with five sets of scaffolded problems that allow for easy differentiation. Perfect for Guided Math or problem-solving routines.
For each focus skill, you'll find 5 word problems that increase in complexity from first grade level to fifth grade level. The first page in the set includes all 5 problems while the following pages offer each problem on its own "thinking mat" (following the UPS Check model).
Great for assessment, small group math, whole class problem-solving and more! If you have students who are struggling, start where they are! If you have students ready for more challenge, bump up the complexity.
I've also included tips on how to use these math problems with Guided Math or Problem-Solving Rounds. And each set has its own key.
Take a peek at the Preview for sample pages from the Word Problems Ninjas Set!
