    Daily Word Problems by Evan Moor

    When I taught 4th, the kids struggled with word problems. I used the book DAILY WORD PROBLEMS 4th grade by Evan Moor and this really helped. I would have 3 kids voluntarily come up to the white board and "explain their thinking" and how they got their answer. As you could imagine, some used #'s, pictures, manipulatives, etc. This did wonders in with my class as they began to understand how to pull apart the word problem to decide exactly what it is asking. I am a very visual problem solver and always used pictures. It really helped some kids to "see" the problem.

    *Daily Word Problems does come in a 5th grade version

    My daughter who was in 4th last year, was having a hrd time with words problems so I started having her "draw" out the problem- she thought that was so "baby-ish". It really helped her and she still uses visuals to "see" the problem as a mini story.
