Weekly Word Problems

My students are really struggling with word problems this year.  They do great when it's only addition, only subtraction, or only multiplication, but it totally throws them for a loop when they have to choose the operation.  I've done lessons on this, I have posters with key words, and I've even had my students create their own posters using chart paper, but this is just going to have to be a skill we practice daily.  I'm in the process of creating monthly word problem practice sheets for each month, so that we can practice 3 word problems each day.  The daily problems will be written so that the context of the story problem is the same for all three problems which will allow students to really focus on the math key words.  My August and September sheets will only have addition and subtraction word problems, and the October and November sheets will have addition, subtraction, and multiplication word problems.  The December-May sheets will have addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division word problems.  I will have 4 weeks worth of word problems for each month.

You can grab your copy by clicking on the picture!  I know November is almost over, and but hopefully you can use it next year.  I'll be adding the other months to my TpT store as soon as they're ready.
