This folder contains activities that will allow students to demonstrate their ability to solve word problems and talk about their reasons for solving the problem the way they did. The folder contains six weeks (one for each day, five days) of word problems and math talk activities. You can use these activities in whole group, small group, math canters, homework, and individual activites. Included in the folder is a teacher commentary form that can be used to let the students know how well they did on the activity. These activities can be use as challenge work for second grade and review for fourth grade students.
