Story Problem Example

This story problem template has been a lifesaver in my first grade class. My team and I discovered that when we made story problems that had real word value students were more invested and interested in solving them.

We used the template provided by our school district, but made the story problems so they featured students, teachers, and even administrators from our building. Students were excited to see who was featured each week, and were even inspired to begin creating their own. We also tried to incorporate holidays that were coming up.

By using the school district provided template students were not anxious when they saw the quarterly problem, and became more comfortable with solving story problems all together.

Give this a try and let me know what you think!
