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.
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!
