    I told myself that I can't go eat until I finish writing lesson plans. I am on Thursday's plans for math. (This is an advanced class that is about five days ahead of everyone else.)

    I want them to create math strategy posters for solving word problems.
    My brain is FRIED. (probably hungry)

    Please give me some more strategies and I'll check back in about ten minutes to see if anyone else is on here.

    So far, I have
    1. visualize the problem
    2. draw it out
    3. underline the key words
    4. reread the problem

    I give up and am going to go get a sandwich. :dizzy:

    Set up your number sentence?
    Reverse the problem to check your work? (For example use subtraction to check an additon word problem). Not sure how to word it--we just call it "show it two ways" -to get full credit the kids know they need to reverse it to check.

    Have them create a graph, chart, or table. Also use guess and check.

    I'm back, fed and happy and ready to go to bed.

    Plans were a bit easier to do this week. I did a lot of cutting and pasting in the language portion.

    The kids I have love math, and so they will probably come up with some strategies they like. I wanted to take a break from fractions and let the lessons soak in for a day or two. I've found that it's sometimes a good idea to do that.

    We are working on fractions too and it is torture. Good luck this week!
