Reflection: Checks for Understanding Word Problems with 3 Addends Part III - Section 3: Independent Practice


Make sure and check their work when they are finished. If possible, check it the same day they complete it. This is so important because it allows you to notify them quickly if there is any misunderstandings. You are improving their learning process and eliminating mistakes by catching them fast and showing them how to solve their problems. You can see in this picture that I had a student attempt to use tally marks to solve their word problems, but mistakes occurred in their process. I called this student up and attempted to reteach using tally marks to solve their problems, but the student could not process this strategy. I changed their strategy to drawing a picture because I felt this student needed a more concrete method to solve the word problems. You do what fits for each student and their level of processing.
