Third Grade Common Core Problem Solving

Okay...so I decided that I needed something for my students to practice problem solving daily with single and multi step standards. I've been using little slips of paper with word problems that they glue into their  math journals. These little strips are driving me crazy (even though it saves paper). I really want to have one problem per day they can either solve in class or take home and solve that is all in one place. This started my little obsession with my new Super Solvers Weekly Packs.  Thank you to the 3am Teacher for the cute graphics, 3rd Grade Gridiron for the freebie backgrounds and Jessica Stanford for the adorable fonts. :)

I don't know about you but my students continue to struggle with problem solving. So I decided to create a box for each problem that makes the students state what they already know. Because Common Core wants students to show and explain, I included those parts as well. I'm hoping that this is something I can do in class and then also later send home for weekly homework. We'll see.

Take a peek and see what you think to download your FREEBIE. I've already completed 3 total sets..Addition/Subtraction, Multiplication, and now Division. I'm so excited about these. Stay tune for more. Like I said, I am now in OCD mode and have plans to create more for fractions, geometry, measurement, and data.

  1. These are really great and I will be giving them a try! Did you realize that your "Farmer's Market" problem starts out with them buying peaches, then ends with them giving out apples? :D

  4. Teaching your students problem solving skills is one of the very most important things you can do for them. Having worked in industry all of my life, I can tell you that I have had engineers and other professionals working for me and around me who haven't even the basic notion of how to systematically solve a problem. Learning it at that age is possible, but so much better to learn it earlier since it is useful in every part of your life. Good for you, and thanks for sharing!
