I use this packet to help students find patterns in lists of numbers. This is the skill emphasized in Everyday Math Frames and Arrows problems. The problems in this packet are Frames and Arrows problems....but in the form of a word problem.
-3 different word problems
-An "I can" page (to be used in a math journal or folder) with steps to solve these problems and a visual clue (a 100s grid with a sample problem)
My students glue the "I can" page and the word problems in their math journals before solving.
