In one of the math sections in our state testing, students are required to explain how they came up with their answers in different ways. They had to draw it out, write the mathematical equation and write out their explanation in sentence form. These sheets that can be used by Kindergarten and First graders help prepare them for this test.
Math Story Problem Solving Book:
Students solves story problems 3-4 ways.
⚫ Read Problem:
First, we read the problem to be solved as a group. We discuss what the question is asking us to do.
⚫ Act It Out! :
Second, we would Act It Out! We did this as a group or we use manipulatives. Students love to play the parts of the story problem so that is what we do mostly.
⚫ Draw It Out! :
Next, Draw It Out! We would draw out the problem either by drawing the items it said or using a figure for that item (such as circles, dots, etc.). Thirdly, we would write down My Answer! We would write out the number sentence that went along with the story problem.
⚫ Write It Out!:
Finally, we would Write It Out! We talked about what words we needed write down to explain how we figured out the problem stressing writing complete sentences and using number words for the numerals we were using. For younger students I would not do this part right away at the beginning of the school year, but you will be amazed at how quickly students can do these sheets at the end of the year.
Blank Problem Solving Sheets:
A blank problem solving sheets with the Write It Out! part, along with a blank sheet without the Write It Out! part are provided in case you would like to make your own story problems.
