No Prep Christmas Word Problems:
This Christmas word problems pack for 3rd grade math problem-solving will ease the stress of this busy time of year! It comes in two versions – a digital Google Slides™ version and a print version! It is a super resource for fun, yet meaningful Christmas math word problems for needed review and practice before the winter break.
This is an excellent source for Winter Break homework!
Your students will love the fun approach to learning around the holidays with these word problems, and you will enjoy the ease of planning at this hectic time of year! Simply print or use the paperless version! Answer keys are included to save you time.
Both the print version and the digital version include 20 math problems for morning work, small groups, math workshops, guided math, homework, intervention, or independent practice.
Each Christmas word problem requires students to use equations, visual representations, and words in a graphic organizer format. The steps were created for the purpose of making sense of a problem, instead of using tricks and keywords. Students must understand what the problem is asking by completing the graphic organizer.
Also included are three posters of the essential questions so that you can choose as you differentiate. There is another poster that lists some of the Common Core skills that students will be using to solve each problem.
