In this powerpoint teachers will model for students how to problem solve through strategy reading. Students will be asked to listen as the teacher reads the problem without the questions and then share questions they have about the action of the problem. Then students will be asked to listen to the problem being read again and draw a picture to support the action. The students will then read the problem and talk through all the strategies they have to solve the problem. The teacher will take notes on the board and then help the students through solving the problems using the most efficient problem solving strategies.
This powerpoint also includes mental math slides for students. Students will be asked to view 5 tens frames and determine how many total.
