I created this product after noticing that my newcomer students were struggling to solve the application problems and participate in math discussions centered around the problems. This product includes all of the Application Problems for Engage NY/Eureka Math, Grade 2 Module 8. There are pictures and space for students to draw, write a number sentence and a word sentence on every page. In addition, the language is simplified in most of the problems (some problems already contain simplified language). This has helped my ELL's a ton in the classroom! They are more confident and successful when solving the problems. They are able to participate in discussions, because while the language is simplified, the central concept and math of the problems are the same.
