Area Problem Solving Differentiated Mini Lessons and Homework Review: Rectangle and Parallelograms Levels 1 - 5
These differentiated mini lessons are unique because they include worksheets designed to help teachers reach a high level of rigor while also providing alternative worksheets that provide differentiated instruction for struggling learners by breaking problem solving down into manageable chunks and gradually building in rigor.
* Each worksheet comes with a stated LO (learning objective) and guided lessons (simple step by step notes) on the left column. Students can easily reference these notes while working. The two additional columns of problems provide ample opportunities for guided and independent practice. Two DOL problems (demonstration of learning) provide the teacher with an opportunity to assess learning and take grades as needed.
With two worksheets per level,homework review that aligns to the lesson is simple. Additional mixed review worksheets provide the essential review and reteach that is needed to ensure mastery.
note: I am continually additional lessons and expect to have additional levels of mini lessons available this year.

These materials have proven to be an effective tool when modifying lessons for remedial students and providing mandated IEP modifications as it provides comprehensive and sequential remediation of skills, concepts, and problem solving applications.
Also available for purchase:
* Triangle Problem Solving Task Cards. With the problem on the front and the answer with explanations on the back of each card, students are able to practice their problem solving skills independently.
* Independent and Dependent Variable Mini Lessons.
* Area Problem Solving Mini Lessons: Rectangle and Parallelograms
note: I have received great feedback from parents that felt these
materials provided them with an effective structured approach
to home study and review.
Accuracy is very important to me. I only sell materials that I myself use and attempt to have made all corrections before uploading. If you find an error, notify me and I will make corrections and send them to you in a timely manner.
