This resource contains a Problem Solving Graphic Organizer designed to help students think through the steps of solving word problems.
• The graphic organizer may be displayed on an interactive whiteboard for whole class discussions.
• Students may keep a copy of the Problem Solving Strategy Graphic Organizer in their journals as a reference. Then, write the numbers 1-8 as they solve word problems.
• The teacher may choose to laminate the graphic organizer so students may use fine tip dry erase markers to solve their problems.
• I have included a jpeg of the printable which may be used to create or order a poster. Students complete the graphic organizer by placing sticky notes in the boxes.
