This unit helps build basic skills and understanding of word problems. It focuses on visualizing the information set in a word problem and using key words to help students solve the problems. I recommend it for struggling students or those who are just starting out because the language is simple, vocabulary is limited and number used are less than 13. This is so that students grasp a basic concept and not get stuck in trying to decode or in reading comprehension.
Includes 4 pages of lesson plans/instructions and 17 pages of student worksheets.
