This is an ACE Problem Solving Graphic Organizer for solving word problems. We use these in second grade math, but they can be used in any grade. The A stands for "Answer", the C stands for "Cite", and the E stands for "Explain". In the A box, the students should write the answer to the word problem with a label, in the C box the students should write their number sentence that shows proof of the answer, and in the E box the students should explain their thought process behind solving the problem. We have also tweaked this for younger grades by removing the lines from the E box and asking them to draw a picture. This is great preparation for explaining their answers when solving word problems on the PSSA's!!!
