Description

Word Problems for Success is a thematic word problem resource designed to provide differentiated and scaffolded practice with the 4.5 step plan for 1st and 2nd grade students. This is a summer journal, designed to provide differentiated practice all summer long using the Polya's problem-solving framework. Themes covered: Memorial Day, Fourth of July, beach, cooking out, picnics, swimming, and other summer activities.

It is CRITICAL that students develop strong problem-solving skills early-on. It's not enough to answer a number sentence -- students need a conceptual understanding and the ability to use multiple strategies. More importantly, students need a framework they can apply to ANY word problem, on their own at any time.
