Like my writing and R.E.A.D. checklist, this is a great tool for students to see what they have to have in order to get a “4” or a “Meets with Excellence” on their word problems. My students have also struggled with word problems and what operation to use. I created this checklist so my students could remember what steps to take in solving word problems. They are able to refer back to their checklist to check if they met the requirements and remember all the parts of solving a word problem.
This is an awesome way for students to self-assess themselves and have a visual helper to guide them in solving word problems. In addition, I use this checklist during math workshop to work with my students either individually or in small groups.
Also, I included a math helper that shows key words for addition and subtraction, when to use an addition or subtraction examples and a sample word problem. This can be attached on the back of the checklist. There are also anchor charts that correspond with each component of R.U.L.E.S. so you can have it displayed in your room.
Grading tags with:
-ME, MP, DP, WB scale
Anchor charts for each letter that can displayed in the classroom
Please check out my other checklists to see how I set up them up.
