PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Wizard of Oz - Math Problem Solving – Grades 4 & 5

WANT AN INTERESTING WAY TO GET YOUR STUDENTS INTRIGUED WITH MATH?

Students are generally familiar with The Wizard of Oz movie, right? This leads to quick engagement with the original classic novel, upon which these math questions are based. As the students talk about the math and how to solve they also get caught up in the story and can’t wait to continue!

You can put the problems on a white board and have the entire class work a problem at a time. I spend 30 minutes twice a week on these problems. I have them write with dry erase markers on their desks and walk around and give them feedback so they can be successful.

These would also be great for a class or grade level theme based math competition.

They can be used for RTI groups to build growth with your students.

You can copy them and assign to students for a challenge or when they are “done.” They have been so excited about this series they have asked me to write more math problems with other novels.

A GREAT WAY TO RAISE THEIR BENCHMARK SCORES, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY... THEY LEARN TO LOVE MATH!

________________________________________________________________
► Overview ◄

Students who have a variety of skill levels can successfully work through these word problems. This unit should be a great resource for your 5th grade typical and reluctant learners in addition to 4th grade advanced learners.

This unit is a set of 86 constructed-response problems that cover the entire story line of the "Wizard of Oz" through math problems. There is an answer key in the back of the unit.

Your students can solve engaging, child-friendly problems as they are learning math.

This theme based unit engages your students with the wonderful classic story while increasing their mathematical reasoning.
