Help students take the fear out of math problem solving and extend their recognition of the patterns. Using this supplemental math resource, your students will gain confidence in their math problem-solving abilities, develop higher level critical thinking skills, and do so while developing growth mindset attitudes.
Students will use a Night Monster theme to identify, extend and make their own patterns as well as solve problems of addition, subtraction, missing addend/subtrahend and even multiplication and division. Students are encouraged to work with partners as they discuss math story problems presented by the teacher. Later, students work to develop their own problems for classmates to solve. There are two wonderful projects for students to complete. Make learning stick with these center activities and projects!
Included in this resource are detailed lesson plans for 10 days (or pick and choose what you wish to use), colorful manipulatives, storyboards, problem cards, center activities, project descriptions, student blacklines, storyboard problem models and much more. Buy each unit as it become available!
