As mentioned in Unit 1 Lesson 14, students are expected to interpret and understand equations with just one operation (3.OA.1, 3.OA.2), but whether students should know how to write an equation for a two-step word problem is less clear. The Progressions state, “more difficult problems may require two steps of representation and solution rather than one” (OA Progression, p. 28). Thus, it is left to the teacher to decide what “more difficult” means for your students, and when to make the transition to representing some two-step word problems with one step of representation/one equation, which you could do here or wait for subsequent lessons and units to do so. As some general guidance, it seems reasonable to expect every student to be able to write an equation for all one-step problems and for two-step problems where the unknown is isolated on one side of the equal sign in the equation without needing to manipulate it by the end of the year. For example, see #42 on Grade 3 Common Core Mathematics Test Released Questions May 2016.
