Steps to Solve Word Problems

These posters are old but as with most things I make I was bored of them. Remade them and figured I'd share. Obviously there are tons of ways to solve problems and not all of them require you to actually write and solve equations but I figure these at least give kids something to look at if they have no idea where to start. Basically something I can refer to for the kid that looks at a problem and completely has no idea. At least maybe following one or more of these steps might get some thinking going on. 

Each one is sized to print on a regular piece of paper. The title is intended to be printed and then cut/taped to be longer.

  1. So glad to see you back blogging again Sarah! Love the posters.

  2. Hi Sarah! I LOVE the ideas I'm seeing here and have been trying to download a few of the posters and the mathematical practices for my room; for some reason or another, I am unable to do so. Is there a way to contact you for these items?
