This product supports students to write and solve number sentences collaboratively. My students love to work with the multilink cubes when they do the warm up activities included in this resource.
After doing the warm up, students read the word problem to each other. They decide on the correct number sentence and cut and paste it to match the word problem. This is working very well with ELL students as the sentences have been simplified.
More able students write their own number sentences and solve the problems.
An answer sheet and QR codes are included in this product! I use this activity for math centers where students have to work in pairs to share their knowledge and understanding with each other. The product includes a detailed step by step explanation on how to prepare students to be ready for the collaborative learning part.
