All 14 types of CGI word problems are included in this bear themed word problem set. CGI or Cognitively Guided Instruction is based on research into different problem types. Sometimes it’s easy to keep giving students the same problem types, this product helps you make sure that your students can solve all problem types.

The word problems are written without numbers to make it easy to differentiate since you choose the actual numbers for each problem according to your students’ needs. For each CGI problem type, the problem is typed up in a large one page version, a cut and paste version for student notebooks with 5-8 per page and a teacher record sheet for each problem that can be used for small group planning and anecdotal notes. Each page has an abbreviation for the problem type and an abbreviation key is included. Correlates to addition and subtraction standards in grades K-2.
