PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What’s the Question is a great tool for students to understand word problem.
They are given an answer (5 pumpkins) and must come up with a question.

My classes in years past have made books with just their questions and students would choose problems from the book to solve and show their understanding.

After writing word problems, my students are better able to dismantle and solve any word problem put in front of them. What’s the question is a favorite workstation with my second graders.

These monthly cards can be set out in 1 of 3 ways.

The first set of cards is simple the nouns (pumpkins, Pilgrims, pies, etc) Here, students can pick their number in any number of ways (roll dice, spinner, assigned numbers) The options are endless.
The second set have numbers assigned, but they do not exceed 12.
The third option has higher 2 digit numbers for your high fliers or possibly multiplication problems.
