Katrina, here is what I recommend for problem-solving:
Scholastic website: Math Maven's Mysteries: http://teacher.scholastic.com/maven/
Math Think-Alouds Article: http://www2.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3584
Math Word Problems Made Easy, Grade 5 (you can get this for any grade level): http://www.amazon.com/Math-Word-Problems-Made-Easy/dp/0439529735/ref=br_lf_m_1000080701_1_6_ttl/183-4043499-4964905?_encoding=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=books&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=05Y9DP6RB19PV5S6ZYSY&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_p=287581901&pf_rd_i=1000080701
I am also in the process of creating a problem-solving website. It may be up in January or even before the new year begins! Thank you for responding.
