This product is a great way to teach single-step comparison word problems to students. It is also a great review before moving on to multi-step comparison word problems.
This pack includes:
-a strategy box in the beginning to teach/review different strategies students should use to solve any math word problem.
-2 guided practice problems
-4 partner/independent practice problems
-a teacher answer key
-suggestions for movement
I usually do the the two guided practice problems with the students, modeling and asking students questions as we go. To get movement involved, I suggest having students do alternating movements for each step. For example, when they write what they know, they do that step standing up. Then they have to answer "Who has more?" sitting down. They repeat this process until they get their final answer. I've found that mixing the movements in with steps in word problems really helps my students figure out each sequential step in the thinking process.
The back page has four practice problems for students to try on their own. I usually pair students up to do the first two. If successful, then they try to last two on their own and check with their partner.
The answer key is included with answers for each step according to the strategy box.
