Each of these packs will have five word problems to use in mini-lessons that come with a visualization poster, scaffolded pages for guided practice, and completed examples. There will additionally be 15 problems for independent practice.
I like using the visualization poster for think-alouds, checking student understanding, and supporting students that are struggling to grasp concepts.
I’d love for you to check out and enjoy one of these mini-lessons. Let me know what you think, and thanks for stopping by and enjoy a Festive Fall resource with this Virginia blogger! And before you leave, please enter my giveaway for a copy of my 4.5 Step Plan pack as well as an item of your choice from my store!

This is a strategy that would be really helpful to my fifth graders. I encourage them to "draw a picture" whenever possible. It really helps them to break it down!

Per usual, I can count on you to get my teaching done for me. I see "all 4's" in my future according to the grading rubrics.
