These posters and individual cards include strategies and tools students can use to solve word problems. They align with CCSS and support CGI lessons and the mathematical practices. One set includes strategies and tools often introduced in the primary grades and the other has multiplication and division strategies. The posters can be used as anchor charts for whole/small-group instruction or to reference when doing classwork or homework.
There are 4 charts (2 color, 2 bw), 22 strategies in individual cards and 2 blank sheets to add new strategies . The strategies included are:
-number charts (multiplication and 120 charts)
-doubles + 1
-place value charts
-base ten blocks
By having these charts available, students are encouraged to use different strategies every time they problem solve. They also learn to distinguish strategies and tools that are more effective.
