This product includes 15 CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction) word problems and task cards related to animals. Each of the 15 problems is in an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet with pre-selected numbers, space for the students to show their strategy, an equation, a solution, and a written explanation.
Another set with the same format is included but this one has blanks for teachers to change the numbers students will work with. There is an additional sheet that could serve as a second page to all problems. Sometimes I ask my early finishers to share another strategy for the first set of numbers chosen or to simply choose a new set of numbers to work with for that second page.
Each CGI word problem also comes in sets of 4 or 5 problems per page so that they may be glued in journals or a sheet of your choice. There are two sets of these: one with the pre-selected numbers and one with blanks for students/teachers to fill in.
This product also includes the same CGI word problems in task cards for independent practice, small-group intervention, math centers, etc.
The word problems are designed for students between 2nd-4th grade but may be adapted to fit the needs of other grade levels.
The types of CGI word problems included are: Join Result Unknown, Join Change Unknown, Join Start Unknown, Separate Result Unknown, Separate Change Unknown, Separate Start Unknown, Multiplication, Multiplication Comparison, Partitive Division, Measurement Division, Multiplication involving measures, Partitive Division involving measures, and a Multiplication combination problem.
