This product is specifically designed to help second graders understand and solve word problems within 100. It uses an AMAZING and effective strategy called, Numberless Word Problems. Students will no longer absentmindedly add or subtract numbers they see, because there aren't any numbers there - at first, anyway.
With this strategy, a word problem is presented with all the numbers removed.
For example: I saw some frogs on a log. Some hopped away. How many frogs are on the log now?
Students must THINK about and PROCESS the problem. They are then given snippets of needed information, a little at a time, until the problem is solved. By presenting a word problem in a numberless manner first, students are truly focusing on what the problem is asking. The mathematical thinking that happens is amazing and student motivation and engagement is at its highest!
