It seems a lot of the Common Core math trainings we have been attending have been focusing on solving problems that have more than one solution. We have spent a lot of time representing numbers in various ways and I wanted to use that daily focus and mix in a little writing. We started Word Problem Wednesday this week. My little ones seemed to enjoy it and I got some very creative responses. Students are asked to create word problems for the given answer. It is a nice time to review the key words for addition and subtraction and additional practice with their facts and writing never hurts. The cherry on top is that easily becomes a differentiated activity. Students can show their abilities by creating word problems that are more challenging and incorporate more than one operation.
