This book is for students with reading and listening comprehension deficits. It is ideal for visual and kinesthetic learners, particularly those who love to draw, but it can be beneficial for students with other learning preferences and interests as well.
This book is a multi-step word problem with lessons in parts of speech as well as math calculation and problem solving. Some of the lessons are to be done on the board, and some need to be printed and distributed. Depending on your students, direct teacher guidance may be necessary for some or all of the lessons. The word problem is divided into three sections.
Reading and Drawing:
The word problem with each sentence highlighted so students can draw pictures of their meanings
Each sentence placed in a “city” for its words to be put into their corresponding “houses” representing their parts of speech
The mathematical steps of the problem for students to solve
