This is a differentiated unit to use in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. Pretest students beforehand to gauge their skills. Then place them in one of three groups. Teach skills and give students worksheets to practice daily for two weeks. The first week is single step problems and the second week is multi-step problems. Finally, give them the post test.
Group 1: adding and subtracting word problems
Group 2: mostly multiplying and dividing (1 digit divisors) word problems
Group 3: mixed harder problems
Do 4 problems with kids together to get them using the CUBES strategy
Then send them off for daily practice which is in the form of math talks- 2 problems per day
