Product Description

This is a great resource to use when teaching kids to show their thinking on a word problem. I use these in my math centers, and I use this format weekly on math tasks. Here's how it works:

M- Model (space to show their strategy- drawing a number line, making a ten frame, pictures, etc.)

E- Equation

S- Solution

S- Sentence (depending on their level, you can either have them write the solution in a complete sentence like "John has 6 apples left." or you can have them write sentences explaining how they found their solution.
