This resources includes 8 problem solving job posters, 8 student job cards, and a rubric for completing the math jobs.
Word problems require our students to bring everything they’ve got; careful analysis, determining important information, drawing pictures, deciding on an operation to use, writing equations, and regularly making sure their work makes sense.
These are jobs I have used to help my students go through this process together. You might not choose to use every job, every day, for every problem. This resource gives you the option to pick and choose which jobs you want to use/focus on each day.
