Product Description
Within this product, you will find a lesson I use to teach students the strategy of drawing efficient pictures to help solve a word problem. In this lesson, students will only work with addition word problems, where the sum is the missing amount to find.

Before teaching this lesson, I first introduce word problems:

Introduction to Word Problems: What Are They and How Can We Make Sense of Them? https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Introduction-to-Word-Problems-What-Are-They-and-How-Can-We-Make-Sense-of-Them-3555680

and then I teach a strategy for making sense of the word problem before solving (writing a situation equation):
Making Sense of Word Problems Through Situation Equations
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Making-Sense-of-Word-Problems-Through-Situation-Equations-3556703

For those lessons, please visit our store or contact us.

This lesson, however, can be done without those steps, with a few minor adjustments.
If you prefer to skip these lessons, an example of a ‘situation equation’ along with a ‘situation equation’ vocabulary card can be found in this product so that you can include this work in today’s teaching as you see fit.

Included in this Product Download:

1 teacher sample of how to do a situation equation task
Sentence Stems Poster for task (free 11x17 version available on our store)
3 Class Practice Word Problems (with pictures!)

Where to go from here? – Once students have learned to draw efficient pictures for adding, we move on to applying that strategy to word problems that require subtraction:

For that lesson, please see our store or contact us.

However you use this ‘Solving Addition Word Problems by Drawing It Efficiently’ lesson/activity set, I genuinely hope that you find these materials helpful in your students’ exploration of word problems!

Happy teaching & happy learning.
