Use this problem solving strategies poster or reference tool to help support students when completing word problems. The strategies posters included are in color and also black & white. I have various styles within the product so you can print and choose which works best for your classroom and students.
For example: I have printed a color copy in poster-size for my math board in my classroom and then made student copies of the black & white version for student notebooks.
The strategy posters included are aliigned to the mathematical processing standards: analyze, strategize & solve, justify, and evaluate.
In addition to the single poster with all four steps, I have also included four seperate pages which breakdown the process of problem solving. I have included an explanation of each step, strategies/questions to think about to help students with that step, and then given an example of how to use that step with a word problem. The same word problem is used on all four pages so that students can see the entire problem-solving process. These pages are only included in color as they are meant for classroom display.
