This product is designed to help teachers that use CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction) in their upper elementary classroom for math instruction. It is aligned to 4th grade standards. The numbers sets and contexts are designed to be used during the back to school / fall season (1st and/or 2nd Quarters). Each word problem includes a page with smaller word problems that can be cut apart and glued in students' math notebooks and a full page version. A student strategies page that shows examples of possible student strategies (including a picture/model, repeated addition strategy, and strategies based on properties of operations/place value) is included for each problem, as well as a discussion guide in which I make recommendations on how to facilitate the student-led discussion to target specific skills/standards. I include recommendations about how to choose students to share, what vocabulary to introduce, and possible probing questions to pose to the class.
This product specifically includes:
-Rationale for Number Sets
-Getting Started Pages
-5 Equal Groups Multiplication Problems
-5 Array/Area Multiplication Problems
-10 Multiplicative Comparison Word Problems
-Student Strategies page and Discussion Guide page(s) for each problem
-EDITABLE Word Problem Pages to adjust the number sets to your needs
