Product Description

If you teach elementary-level mathematics, you have likely heard of and at one point utilized Polya's Four Step Plan for problem-solving. Using the Understand, Plan, Solve, and Check (UPSC) model, students are able to solve single and multi-step word problems. This resource pack is based on Polya's model with a significant (I feel) improvement -- a half-step, prior to understand: visualize.

This pack includes the following elements:

• how to’s and background information on the “4.5 Step Plan”
• anchor charts, in English and Spanish {poster and one-page sizes}
• completed example of a 4.5 Step Plan with "math talk" bubbles for your focus wall
• mini-lesson for teaching visualizing with an original poem and printable resources
• EDITABLE templates to create word problems using the 4.5-step format in both PowerPoint and SMART Notebook
• information for teaching with gestures {including a short video example, and a version of the anchor chart to include student photos}
• dry-erase mat templates for small group learning
• interactive notebook template
• student bookmarks

There's No Place Like Second Grade
(1 Review)

Hi, I'm Sarah Plum! I'm a second-grade teacher in Northern Virginia. I teach a high-population of English Language Learners (ELLs), so all of my resources are ELL-friendly and fully-differentiated! I love math, and try to always find ways to create engaging, differentiated materials that are easy for teachers to implement, easy for students to LOVE, and easy for parents to replicate at home!
