As a kid I struggled with word problems. I had a hard time understanding what I was reading and figuring out which operation to use was not easy for me. So I came up with a way to help my kids figure out what operation to use and what key words to look for in the word problems.
I created this anchor chart, I keep a copy of my charts in a binder for my children to pull out and reference when they are stuck. You can do that or you can print it out and hang it in your learning area.
What tricks do you use to help figure out which operation to use? Let me know in the comments!
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
