This clip chart focuses on math strategies for K-1st grade. Students can pick a strategy to focus on by moving their clip.
I use a hole puncher and binder clips to make my chart hang vertically. You could also use ribbon.
Here are the strategies (each one is on a separate poster):
*Use Logical Thinking: What I already know/need to know
*Guess and Check: guess the answer and check it.
*Look for Patterns: skip count.
*Write a Number Sentence: 1+2=3
*Use Objects: counters and cubes.
*Draw Out the Problem: use a picture.
*Work Backwards: Start at the answer to fill in the missing parts.
*Organize the Information: use charts and graphs.
You can use all the posters for your chart or only the ones that apply to your math.
