Let's tackle getting your students to read and re-think multiple times to understand and solve word problems correctly. Repetition = perfection! This huge no prep bundle of 9 products will help you teach your students to use close reading to solve word problems ALL YEAR LONG. These word problems are based on common core story structure for all 4 operations (including fractions), both one step and multi step word problems. All of the 90+ problems are on a graphic organizer that helps students learn to use close reading strategies in math.
Students read the word problem four different times with a different purpose each time to help understand and break down the problem:
Read #1: Identify what the story in the problem is about.
Read #2: Identify the numbers in the problem and what they describe in the story.
Read #3: Create a model or drawing to represent the problem.
Read #4: Write the equation that represents the problem.
After four reads, students have said to me, that this is the FIRST TIME they ever actually understood word problems and knew how to solve them!
