Cognitively Guided Instruction, Word Problems

I can't believe that I go back to school tomorrow!!!  Where did the time go??  I have really enjoyed the time holidays and the time with my boys home from college.  There is so much more life in the house with them here!  They make me smile!

I have been working on a professional development book study of Children's Mathematics: Cognitively Guided Instruction.  Using word problems on a regular basis can be challenging.  It is especially challenging when you try to make sure that you cover all the different types that are included in the Common Core.  Many teachers are unaware that there is glossary table 1 page 88 of the Common Core that shows the problem types along with an example of each.

Knowing that my math intervention students need experience and practice with problem solving I have used some of my time during the holidays working on a CGI word problem  to use tomorrow when I go back to school.  I am also posting them as a product on TpT.


I created and posted this in powerpoint so that teachers can change the name to their own students if they want.

Teachers can also adjust the numbers in the stories to meet the needs of their students.

I am planning on adding more as I develop a bank of CGI word problems to use with my first ad second graders.

I hope everyone has a great start to the NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!!  I am linking up with The Third Wheel for a resolution linky.

2015 at Home:  At home I would love to come home to a clean and organized home each day!  Boy I think I need to take an extended leave to get that job done!!  But before I get overwhelmed I will set small goals and work weekly to accomplish them.   Bit by bit gets the job done! 

2015 at Work:  At work I think I will continue to give my best each day.  I want to work closer with families of my students this year.  

2015 my Health:  In 2014 I reached a milestone birthday!!  The BIG 5 0!!  So I need to make a extra effort to maintain my weight and increase my fitness.  

2015 my TPT/Blog:  This area is one that I really need to work on.  I want to increase my consistency and develop more followers  by providing relevant and interesting content.  

I want to wish all my teacher and blogger friends the very best in the new year.
