This unit is based on First Grade problem solving, but would also be perfect for RTI at the second (or even third!) grade level!
This workbook can be used as a unit or throughout the year. With over 85 word problems in all...it's enough to provide meaningful and careful practice with Common Core word problems! Answer key included for your convenience.
This packet utilizes a format based on Singapore Math's RICE strategy: Record, Illustrate, Compute and Explain.
There is also a heavy emphasis on Singapore Math Bar Models (Model Drawings) throughout the workbook.
How do Bar Models Help With Problem Solving?
Based on Singapore Math Strategies, A Bar Model is a learning tool designed to help students solve math word problems accurately and efficiently. Bar Models help students to model mathematical relationships and identify known and unknown quantities. A Bar Model provides students with a powerful image that organizes information and simplifies the problem solving process.
