Teach reading and math together with these engaging comic strips. These activities are great for introducing word problems in a way that will set a foundation for students to solve more complicated problems later. This is a great intervention for students who are having a hard time comprehending word problems. By integrating math and reading you are also able to include more higher order thinking with my worksheets.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
I suggest using this during whole group with direct instruction or in a small group. There are suggested activities that can be used with each worksheet. Go over one word problem for 15-20 minutes for students who are struggling with word problems.
