PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you struggle with students who do not read problems thoroughly, or take time to comprehend what they read in your math classroom? I do! This four page lesson/activity will help guide students through making sense of what they read and eliminating answers from multiple choice questions because they simply don't make sense.

This is what we're working on and I love the look you put into all of your material. It's so much more aesthetically appealing to look at, as math can be difficult for students. I just added your 7th grade bundle to my cart. I just started 7th grade this year and this should help guide the rest of my year :) Thanks for your time and effort :)
