Do you have a student that just starts to add, subtract, multiply, or divide a problem without ever really figuring out what is happening in the story problem? If so.....ummm we all do.... then this resource is for you.
This is a resource that is created to help you teach word problem solving strategies.
When the "act it out" strategy doesn't work for your student this is a phenomenal strategy to try.
This strategy works because students can't just add or subtract the numbers before they ever actually read the problem.
This product guides them through the thinking and reasoning as to why they are adding or why they are subtracting. If students learn reasoning skills this will help them with many subjects in school as well as in life in general (the real-world).
