These are problems based on our state test (STAAR) they have really helped my class get ready. I have the students do one problem a day. First they do the problem by themselves. If they get it right I give them beads to wear. Then I model how to solve the word problem on the projector as a whole class.
My own Success with these products:
I used these products this school year in a Two Way Dual Program and had 97% passing the 4th grade Math STAAR according to the old passing standards. I also had 86% of those passing were above a 70, and 16 out of 34 were commended (above a 90).
