## Boost Problem-Solving with Word Problem Key Words!

Are your students struggling with word problems? It’s a common problem seen in maths classrooms around the world, and we know teachers are always looking for new ways to teach students to identify the operations in problems before they begin to solve maths problems. We’ve put together a handy set of printable anchor charts to help you get them started!

Use these posters in your classroom if your students need help making sense of word problems! These maths keyword posters help students identify keywords in word problems that indicate operations. There are four posters, one for each maths operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division).

The posters also come in black and white, which can be printed on coloured paper to save on ink! The one-page sheets are great for students to use as reference sheets in their maths notebooks or shrink them and use them as bookmarks in their maths workbooks.

You’re just a click away from getting your new resources! Use the dropdown arrow on the Download button to select the Editable Google Slides resource file or the quick-print PDF version.
