Learning how to solve basic word problems is the first step to your students becoming word problem masters! Word problems are not just about math; they are also about words and the special way words are interpreted in word problems. Some students interpret word problems as difficult. They struggle with understanding what the question is asking them to do. This is because they pose a problem but don’t tell you how to solve it. Word problems don’t tell you to add these three numbers or multiply these two numbers. The trick is to know what to do with those facts. This word problem game offers your students the chance to learn the key words in a fun, playful and creative way.

parking creativity can often be challenging. That’s why I created this poster and anchor chart! The descriptive words are often used as prompts or reference. How-to-use I’ve created the same poster twice but in two different shades. The colors/shades may vary depending on the paper, ink and printer you are using. The poster will print on automatic letter size paper. You can change this in your printer setting to print on A3. Making the poster ideal for wall displays. The anchor charts will print 4 to one letter size page. Available in both color options. Simply select the page number you wish to print and enter the required amount. Remembering that 4 to a page will print. Anchor charts are ideal to stick in books and use as a reference guide. Having something quick to refer to often helps students and helps them learn how to reference/pin point to a certain word/area. ▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼ Copyright © Laurena Lakeside.

Reading Record Sheet with Comprehension Questions - Free!!

(0)
Reading records are a good way to assess how much reading a child has done. This can be either at home, school or in reading groups. However, its not just about a child reading for a certain amount of minutes, it’s also about their understanding (comprehension) of what they have read. Some students find it very easy to skim read or are able to decode words with ease but when it comes to the actual understanding of the text or book they have read it can sometimes seem as if they haven’t read it at all. That is not the case its just their comprehension. This reading record sheet aims to help you to help them by knowing if they understand what they have read. What’s on the reading record sheet? There are 7 sections (1 week of reading) Each day has a different comprehension question (some are easier than others) Please note: Watermarks/blurred images will not be in your downloaded file!
