Posing and Solving Story Problems with Story Boxes. We downloaded it from the "Math Learning Center" website for FREE! In November, we did not have a theme. And, oh my, I missed it!
Today, we started the new December theme: presents. Natalie and I introduced the story problems whole group. And the kids were so excited...nope...ecstatic! They got to wear elf hats and solved addition, subtraction, doubling, tens/ones, and multiplication problems. It really went well.
Tomorrow we will start working on the problems during our guided math groups. We made up manipulatives for our firsties to use!
