The students will use critical thinking and creativity, as well as math and writing skils, to create a fiction story that includes a math word problem, as well as the answer and explanation of the solution.
Inspired by one of my tutoring students, this version is an expansion of my free product that included one blank template and one filled in roll-a-word problem template. This version has filled in templates for ALL holidays and seasons throughout the year! Many of the sheets have links in them so students can learn more about people, characters and places before writing. In addition, you will receive a link to all of the templates in Google Drive, so you and your students can edit or change any of the categories. Also included is a blank template and two sample word problem stories written by my student.
What can be better than combining math skills, problem solving and creative writing? This activities are also perfect for those days right before a holiday when you don't want to introduce anything new, or for when you have a substitute in your classroom. My student and I have had so much fun with these, and your students will too!
