This assessment will help you determine the instruction needed for students that struggle solving story problems.
Notice that the numbers use are all within ten. This will help assess the type of problem the student struggles with. Keeping the numbers used in the story problems within ten will leave the focus on the story problem. Once the student understands the problem and can write an equation to solve it, the numbers can be changed.
Use the goal setting guide to write goals for the student and drive your small group instruction.
