Graphic Organizer Problem Solving Templates: Use in Guided Math Groups

These graphic organizers from DePaul University are excellent.  They help students find a way into the problems.  The bonus is that they come in English and Spanish!  Start using them right away! I especially like the one that says solve on the left hand side and explain on the right hand side.

All I can say is these organizers come at a perfect time. The teachers at my school have been concerned about the students’s explanations of their solutions to open-ended problems. As a result, they have been asking me to model lessons focusing on improving students’s math writing. I will use these organizers immediately in these lessons. I work closely with the ELL teacher and I can’t wait to pass the Spanish organizers to her. Many thanks.

I searched for the website from DePaul and it is outstanding. There are soooooo many organizers for every grade level. Mathematastic!!

Graphic organizers are great ways to help students understand the math process, engage them and allows opportunities for self assessment and as well as peer assessment and reflection.

I am looking for graphic organizers that would work for first graders. Sugestions?

The math mats serve as a great context. Also, for word problems use the Thinking Blocks.

Happy Mathing,
