Many problems have no key words.\u003c/strong\u003e For example, How many legs do 7 elephants have? However, any 1st grader should be able to solve the problem by thinking and drawing a picture or building a model.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e3.
There are examples of each story structure for each context/theme.

So they tell us each row has 6 carrots-- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And especially if these were even larger numbers, it would take you forever to count it. If you remember your multiplication-- which you should, because that is one of the things in life that will have long-lasting benefits-- it's 72 carrots.
If you remember your multiplication tables up to 12, you'll remember that 12 times 6 is 72. Even if you only remember-- well, I'll just leave it there.
Children who struggle converting a word problem into a math equation will find it reassuring (confidence builder) to revisit the same verbal clues with different numbers, so consider printing a couple regenerations of each problem.
In a classroom setting you can provide a problem to partners or a group of students to solve together and then provide a regeneration of the same problem for the children to do solo.
Problem solving should feature risk tasks, authentic purposes, and multiple ways to be solved.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-size: 13px;\"\u003e \u003cstrong\u003e More than Words\u003c/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e Solving problems goes beyond mathematics presented as word or story problems.
Problem solving is the act of finding a solution when a method for solution is not obvious.
With my eldest daughter, once I realized how much she struggled with math when it wasn't written down in a nice neat equation, I often walked through a math problem with her (doing most of the work myself) and then provided her a few regenerations of the same problem with different numbers for her to do solo.
After a few weeks of this, she was able to do them without the walkthrough from mom. " fairly quickly so confidence building is important -- if she thinks she can't do something she can't -- if she thinks she can do something she can.
