These third grade word problems with a winter theme will help your students truly understand word problems! The pages require students to use equations, visual representations, and words in a graphic organizer format.
Kids often find it hard to understand word problems. They frequently don’t know what computation or thinking is required to solve them. By providing them with a graphic organizer, you help them make sense of problems instead of relying on tricks and keywords.
Giving your students this graphic organizer as a tool will make word problem solving fun and engaging while at the same time building skills in a rigorous way!
20 math problems for morning work, small groups, math workshop, guided math, homework, intervention, or independent practice.
At the bottom of each page, student’s write a short explanation that will “Convince Me” that their answer is correct.
Included is a poster of the essential question and one that lists some of the Common Core skills that students will be using to solve each problem. An answer key is also included.
