Daily Problem Solving Jul 10, 2006
This item is great for a daily problem solving activity. The students love the visiuals and they decide how to solve the problem.
Great - you need to add this to your daily program. May 31, 1999
I teach first grade and I start each day with one of these problems. My students must draw a picture that shows the problem and the answer; write the number sentence; and write the answer in words, using as many words from the question as possible. I also use manipulatives. For example, if the problem has six horses and two cows and the question is "How many more horses are there than cows?", I give the students six red linkercubes and two yellow linkercubes, and the answer becomes very obvious. So my advice is to add manipulatives to the problem solving whenever possible.
I first introduced the story problems in small groups (about two weeks), and then I moved to doing the problem whole class. I encourage my students to solve the problem in their cooperative learning groups before we discuss and solve it whole class.
