In these worksheets, kindergarten students will learn to solve simple word problems.

#### This is where teachers start bringing math to life for students and making it relate to their daily lives. You should incorporate these types of story-based problems along with the math skills that are involved with them. I would spend the first half of the lesson on the math skill itself and then transition it into the word problems themselves. At this age it is great to get them in the habit of visualizing what they are reading. Have them draw a picture to show what is happening this can be made into a fun activity for them. I like to encourage students to work in groups when they first start to encounter these problems.

Kindergarten students will be introduced to the concept of word problems with this set of worksheets. They will read and follow simple directions to find the solutions to problems. They will also construct and use visual representation to help them to visualize and solve the problems. Some worksheets include only one problem included per worksheet, so that there is plenty of space on each worksheet page for students to draw and solve the problems. A number of problems include pictures that students can use to aid in counting and visualizing while using problem-solving skills. This set of worksheets contains step-by-step solutions to sample problems, both simple and more complex problems. When finished with this set of worksheets, kindergarten students understand the concept of word problems and how to use visual representation to think through to the answer. These worksheets explain how to solve kindergarten-level word problems. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided.
