Monday Math Freebie - Problem Solving Booklet

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
While working on some word problem/problem solving resources, I thought it might be nice for students who weren't journaling in math to have their own problem solving booklets.

In this packet you'll find two versions of the cover (one says word problem book and the other says problem solving book) and a blank problem solving page. On the forms students draw a picture, use a number line, and write an equation to solve the problem. They must also give the solution to the problem and explain how they know the answer is correct.

Here's what the pages look like.
 Download the Problem Solving Booklet.

If you are looking for some word problems to use with these booklets, check out these resources for Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI).
If you're not familiar with CGI, check out this helpful chart from Teacher Tipster.
I hope you get a chance to use this booklet in your home or classroom. Please let me know if you try it and how it works!
