## Reflection: Problem-based Approaches Problem Solving Practice (Day 1) - Section 2: Stations

My students love competition, as many 3rd graders do. By timing my students and challenging them to do their very best at each table, it forces them to focus hard on the work in front of them. I printed out all of these questions and then created plastic baggies full of questions. I do this a lot in my classroom as opposed to worksheets so that students only see 1 problem at a time and don’t become overwhelmed.
