Getting CLOSE with Math Problem Solving & a Freebie! Friends~Room 331 has been working on solving one and two step word problems. Let me tell you, it has not been easy. I don't know what happens when you mix words and numbers but it sure has my kiddos spinning in circles.
I decided that since they did so well with the close reading we were going to get CLOSE with word problems too! Check out me kiddos in action. The did a great job sorting out one stepper and 2 stepper problems. Underlining questions and coming up with solutions. I made those Getting CLOSE with Problem Solving bookmarks for them so that they could stay on track.
This Addition and Subtraction Word Problems Grouped by Problem Type is a year-long resource for problem solving. Total of 156 problems. This packet makes a distinction between procedures (steps in solving a problem), models (which show the relationship between the numbers in the problem) and strategies for computation (such as count on, breaking part a number, etc.). Included are six different models to use with students (all based on inverted-v and bar models).
