PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Problem solving is an essential math skill for primary students, however, it can be a difficult concept to teach. I have put together a unit that will give you everything you need to teach your students the 5 most accessible problem solving strategies:
(1) Use a Number Line
(2) Use Ten Frames
(3) Draw a Picture
(4) Draw Tally Marks
(5) Use Manipulatives

In this pack you will get:

- posters to display on your bulletin board (problem solving header, "I will" poster, 5 math strategies)

- 5 page flip book for students to make and use as their individual anchor chart

- addition poem using signal words

- subtraction poem using signal words

- 2 signal words craftivities (addition and subtraction)

- a 5 page student booklet for each of the 5 strategies

- an 11 page problem solving journal to extend your students learning giving them the opportunity to solidify their learning

- 3 pages (title page, "I will" poster in grayscale, tracking sheet) to set up a problem solving folder for each of your students

I have used popular movies as the theme for the problems which I know will grab your students' attention!!
