Do you ever want your students to explain in detail the procedure they took to solve a problem?
This is the PERFECT activity!
Create 3 possible problems for students to choose from. I recommend solving all 3 of them together as a class or in stations. Then partner the students up in groups of 2. Have students decide which of the 3 problems they understood best! Confidence is key! With their partner and any extra writing tools you provide them, they will complete the graphic organizer provided in this download which will help them identify the steps they solved. Have the students edit their writing for details and add vocabulary. Finally, they can use their organizers and edits to write their final drafts. I have included a narrative writing in mathematics rubric for teachers to assess the narrative pieces with! Enjoy!
