These “mad lib”-style worksheets are instant math motivators! Each hilarious fill-in story gives kids a fun way to practice solving word problems. Skill topics correlate to the NCTM standards and include identifying and comparing fractions; addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with fractions; identifying and comparing decimals; and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with decimals. Perfect for partner and small-group learning, day starters, or homework.
After students fill in the blanks for a story with a partner, make copies and distribute to the class for extra practice or homework. Twenty different versions of one story mean 20 different problems to solve! And students will love seeing their work used as a teaching tool!
