If you do word problem of the day, or a weekly word problem, try this method in your class.
I have been using it for a few years and my kids really grasp the word problems.
Included in this download is the poster you can use to help guide your students to solve the word problems.
Words problems are NOT included in this download. A year's worth of word problems are coming soon!
Check out my blogpost HERE
on how I use it in my room.
