### Description

Math Intervention: Our CCSS aligned math intervention unit provides 14-20 days worth of differentiated problem-solving activities to give students the strategies they need to solve word problems. Perfect for general education, special education, RTI and math intervention! Can be used with students in grades K-3.

Tom the Tabling Turtle is a strategy animal in the Problem-Solving Pond series. Tom teaches students to make a table to solve a word problem. The table strategy helps students write information in an organized format, allowing them to easily identify number patterns and relationships.

Tom uses a special rhyming poem to teach the students how to use the table strategy to solve a variety of story or word problems. Tom's unit includes:

--Introduction to Problem-Solving Pond Unit

--Introducing Tom the Tabling Turtle

--Detailed math intervention lesson plan using gradual release of responsibility method

--"I Can" statements

--Problem-solving journal with differentiation and reflection opportunities (perfect for center work, homework or as an assessment)

--2 versions of the journal are included: 1 has a pre-made table (Tom's turtle shell) and the other has a blank work space for students to create a table

--Extensive word problem banks

--Essential questions, self-reflection stems and discussion prompts

--3 Problem-solving rubrics

--"Hazel Meets the Math Strategy Animals" book

BEST VALUE - Math Problem Solving Essentials Bundle {K-3}

Contains an entire year's worth of math intervention problem solving lessons and activities with the following strategy animals:

--Modeling Mouse

--Drawing Dragonfly

--Tallying Toad

--Counting Crocodile

--Hopping Hare

CCSS2.OA.A.1

Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

CCSS1.OA.C.6

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).

CCSS1.OA.C.5

Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).

CCSS1.OA.A.2

Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

CCSS1.OA.A.1

Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
