Do your students focus on key words in order to know what to do when solving a math word problem?
In order for students to become successful at solving word problems, they must become proficient at identifying what’s happening in the problem situation.

They will never use key words again!
This pack includes 13 colorful posters that detail the operation situations. The posters included in this pack are correlated to the Cognitively Guided Instruction, CGI, problem types:
I hope this product provides a more systematic way for your students to choose the correct operation when solving math word problems!- The Routty Math Teacher
