This resource is a great way to get your students writing in math class. It includes 2 types of writing activities – explain the process
and write your own word problem
By explaining the process for finding a solution, students are able to solidify their thinking and you will have valuable information about their understanding of the topic. This is a great tool for judging a student’s depth of understanding.
Encourage students to take their problem solving abilities to the next level by having them create their own adding and subtracting word problems. By writing their own problems, students become more adept at solving problems written by others and are better prepared for standardized testing.
These writing activities are great for daily math warm ups, centers, and interactive journals.
