We have been talking about problem-solving strategies that we can use to solve word problems. 

* Read the problem 2 or more times.

* Underline the facts. {numbers, key actions, vocabulary}

* Circle the question.

* Model a problem. {counters, base-ten blocks}

* Act out the problem. {Students act out, use technology} 

* Create drawings or diagrams.

* Retell or use graphic organizers. (Beginning, Middle and End)

* Solve the problem.  {Draw a picture.}  

* Write the answer. {Number sentence + Sentence.}

We continue to use different strategies to show our thinking and problem-solving.
