Cognitive Guided Instruction works wonders! I have been teaching Problem Solving for a number of years now and see tremendous growth with my students. They not only gain an understanding of how to read word problems and solve them correctly and efficiently, but their confidence increases as well. Each one of my students attack these problems with a positive mindset and the determination to succeed.
This comes with 5 word problems to get you through an entire week! Each problem has 3 number sets based on student ability. You can either assign them a number set or allow them choose. There is also a place for them to write out their explanation and tell how they solved their problem. ENJOY!
