Do your students have trouble understanding word problems? Do they struggle to create an equation with the unknown to solve? Imagine if your kids were reading each word problem SEVERAL TIMES with the purpose of comprehending the problem, creating a model, and working their way toward an equation. When I've used this graphic organizer with kids, many of them told me that they had NEVER understood word problems until using this graphic organizer!
I have TONS of grade level WORD PROBLEM SETS using my Close Reading Graphic Organizer available for grades 2, 3, 4, and 5! Check them out in my problem solving resources!
