This is a packet created based on our unit 5 ALE.
The idea is for students to be able to create their own word problem. Because our classroom has so many diverse learners, we needed three levels of scaffolding for this assignment.
Booklet 1 (pgs 3-6): This assignment is meant for students who can work independently and have grasped the concept of numbers and operations. Students are expected to write their own word problem, come up with a matching equation and draw a picture to show their work.
Booklet 2 (pgs 7-10): This assignment is meant for students who can work independently but need some guidance from a teacher. This is for students who somewhat understand operations, but are still trying to understand when to use which operation. These students have great ideas about number manipulation but need a small boost to help them get started.
Booklet 3 (pgs 11-14): This assignment is for those students who need significant help with numbers and basic operations. These students may struggle with the concept of number sense and have trouble with their abilities to write descriptive sentences. This booklet is great for them because it provides a platform for those students to work independently, while also gaining knowledge in basic operations.
Please remember to print the booklets double sided (or copy them back to back). If there are any problems with the format of this document, please let me know.
