Engaging ways to teach problem & solution.
When talking about teaching story elements, it is important to note that each of the elements has essential parts. So, when we are teaching any of those elements, we must take a deeper look into the actual standard. Today, we are going to focus on teaching problem and solution, or what is referred to in Common Core terminology as “challenge” and “response.”
I like the terms challenge and response because they encourage us to look into the character over the actual events. How does the character respond to certain events? What are the actions, feelings, thoughts of a character that stem from an event in the story? In Kindergarten and 1st grades, students will be learning how to identify the major characters and events in a story. By 2nd grade, the focus will shift into character response and continues to dive deeper with 3rd and 4th, focusing on specific character feelings, thoughts, and actions. So, how do we teach this?
Make It Personal
Initially, you will want to make it personal. Allow students to connect to the concept by facilitating a discussion on challenges. Have students share with the class, or turn and talk about simple challenges they have faced and how they reacted to them.
Here are a few ideas to start with during the students’ turn and talk.
- Your pencil tip broke.
- You left your homework at school.
- Your science test is this Friday.
- You wake up with a fever.
- You spill juice in the living room.
These simple problems have fairly straightforward solutions. So, students will be able to build connections to the concept before diving into deeper challenges.
A simple t-chart could be made with some of your students’ scenarios as examples. Write the simple problem on the left and the simple solution on the right.
Then, Use Problem and Solution Scenarios
After discussing simple challenges/problems, your students will be ready to read short texts that contain a character facing a challenge. Allow students time to discuss the challenge and the character’s response to it. You can also continue your discussion from earlier, including larger challenges or problems.
Add to your anchor chart (or create a new one) noting the difference in simple problems and solutions and character challenges and responses. *This may be a time for you to discuss bigger challenges that your students have faced in their lifetimes, recalling how students may have responded differently. It is important for students to understand that different people/characters will respond differently to certain events. This is what helps us understand them.
Gather Books with a Strong Problem and Solution Plot
When teaching problem and solutions, read alouds are going to be essential. You will need to collect books that have a strong problem/solution or challenge/response plot. Look for books where the main character faces a clear and difficult challenge. One that allows us to see how the character acts, thinks, feels, etc.
Here are a few affiliate titles I suggest from Amazon!
- Ira Sleeps Over by Bernard Waber
- The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi
- Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
- Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion
- Jamaica’s Find by Juanita Havill
- Enemy Pie by Derek Munson
Each of these stories provides an opportunity for your students to look at character responses. They are great for group discussions about challenges and the different ways to face them.
Ask Students to Find Problem and Solution in Text
Subsequently, students will need to identify and describe the problem/solution within texts. When first learning the skill, students can illustrate what they think the problem and solution look like. Then, they can build their skills by writing their descriptions. The more opportunities students have with communicating their understanding, the better they will become. So, consider allowing them to do this multiple times before moving on.
Similarly, students will need to be able to read and comprehend fiction stories independently. So, the next step is for students to read on-level texts with comprehension questions. Printable or digital passages with skill-specific questions will be a huge help during this stage of the learning process. One of the great things about problem and solution practice is that, even in isolation, it can build students’ understanding of other elements like plot, character, theme, etc. So, include plenty of comprehension passages in your student practice activities.
Suggested Resource Focused on Problem and Solution
The second-grade standard, RL.2.3 is focused specifically on challenge and response. The unit above (some activities seen in the photos in today’s post) is complete with lesson plans, activities, graphic organizers, comprehension passages, task cards, and more, all focused on building this specific skill. However, each of the other grades contains an element of this skill within their own RL.3 standards. It is so important to ensure adequate practice and direct skill-focus for each of our grade levels!
- RL.2.3- Character Response Unit
Other Grade Level Units That Help Build/Continue Skill
- RL.K.3- Kindergarten
- RL.1.3- 1st Grade
- RL.3.3- 3rd Grade
- RL.4.3- 4th Grade

3rd Grade Math Word Problems Worksheets
Word problems for third grade.
Math word problems help deepen a student's understanding of mathematical concepts by relating mathematics to everyday life.
These worksheets are best attempted after a student has studied the underlying skill; for example, our 'addition in columns" word problem worksheets should not be attempted until students are comfortable with addition in columns.
In many of our word problems we intentionally include superfluous data , so that students need to read and think about the questions carefully, rather than simply applying a computation pattern to solve the problems.
Addition word problems for third grade
Simple addition word problems
Column form addition word problems
Mixed add and subtract word problems
Subtraction word problems

Mixed 3rd grade word problems
The following worksheets contain a mix of grade 3 addition, subtraction, multiplication and division word problems . Mixing math word problems tests the understanding mathematical concepts, as it forces students to analyze the situation rather than mechanically apply a solution.
Mixed word problems - mental math
Mixed word problems - column math
Mixed word problems - simpler form (shorter texts, no superfluous data)
Measurement word problems for grade 3
These word problems combine the 4 operations with real world units of length, time, volume and mass. There is no conversion of units.
Length word problems
Time word problems
Mass & weight word problems
Volume & capacity word problems.
Word problems with variables
These grade 3 word problems introduce students to using variables ("x, y, etc.") to represent unknowns. The problems are relatively simple, but emphasize the use of variables and the writing of equations.
Word problems with variables (variable is chosen for the student)
Writing variables to solve word problems (student chooses the variable)

How To Teach Problem And Solution
Lesson Plans On Problem and Solution
Finding lesson plans on problem and solution can be tricky, but with the right activities, it’s a fun unit to teach! When teaching problem and solution, reading different mentor texts is a must(blog post coming soon!). You should also use engaging, fun lessons and activities to teach problem and solution that your students will remember throughout the year. This blog post will introduce you to our brand new reading unit with lessons plans on problem and solution, which is coming soon! Keep reading for your FREE printable problem + solution game, I have, who has!
Make sure to check out our year’s worth of reading units too!
Why Teach Problem and Solution?
We know it’s important for students to identify the problem and solution in the story, but why should we teach it? Teaching our students the different components of fiction texts is important so they can think and dig deeper into what they are reading. They go from just reading words to thinking more about what is actually happening to the characters, what would they do in this situation, etc.
What Does Problem and Solution Mean?
We want to teach our students that the problem in the story is what went wrong and the solution is how the problem was fixed. Here are some important questions we can ask our students while we are reading a text:
- What is the character upset about?
- How did the story change?
- What went wrong in the story?
- Could the problem have been avoided? How?
- How was the problem solved?
- What were the steps taken to solve the problem?
- How would you have solved the problem?
Using visuals while we teach is important, especially for kids that identify as visual learners. Having a visual, like an anchor chart, helps students see and remember what they are learning.
I also like to use movement anytime I teach a comprehension skill. For example, when teaching students to make connections, they make a pinky promise when they have a connection to the story . When teaching problem and solution, I’ll have students make a thumb to the side, and then for the solution, they’ll make a thumbs up.
Use Engaging Activities Your Students Will Love
When planning a reading unit, finding engaging activities that your students will remember is key .
Become Problem Solvers
With this activity, hide a problem picture inside each manila envelope. In groups, students will take the problem out of the envelope, and together, they’ll discuss what the problem is. Then, they’ll come up with the best solution for that problem. Groups of students will do all six envelopes together. They will love this detective work!
New Character Problems
Exposing our students to different characters and stories is important too. These character cards introduce new characters and then as a class, students discuss the problem and then come up with possible solutions.
Use Reading Centers
Using reading centers that go with your reading comprehension skill help reinforce what your students are learning in class. These are great extension activities to continue to learn and practice their new knowledge. Students will love using these problem and solution centers independently or in your small group.
In this fun center, students will match the problem to the solution. Visuals and text are included.
Find The Solution
This center is a fun one and would work wonderfully as a guided reading warm-up too. Students read the sentence and then move the picture that matches the solution.
Students love sorting games. In this activity, students will look at the problem and then match it to the solution. They will then put the problem card under the “Problem” heading and the solution card under the “Solution” heading.
Graphic Organizers and Flipbooks
Teaching students to write about their reading is important, even in the younger grades. This is another step to help them comprehend the story.
Let us do the planning for you!
Do you want your lesson plans completely finished, with reading passages, a craftivity, assessments, centers, and more? Don’t worry- we have you covered! Plan your entire problem and solution reading unit here!
But wait….grab a FREE problem + solution game too!
