Problem Solving

So as a kid I hated problem solving (word problems).  I dreaded working on those problems.  As a teacher I don't want my students dreading word problems as much as I did.  With the common core standards problem solving activities is going to be a must do.  So I've been trying to come up with activities to help students with this.  I created these problem solving posters.  So many times students don't know why they do what they do.  This year I want to emphasize thinking/think alouds in math. 

This is a good visual to start students with the math extended reponses.  Be sure to check out the Teaching Oasis for more Problem Solving ideas and for extended response ideas check out the Show and Tell Math.

This is an awesome ppt! Thank you.

Just an FYI: I found duplicate words on the "Make an Organized List" page.
