Be a Detective and find those KEY WORDS!

  • Let's Find Key Words in our questions.
    KEY WORDS help us figure out the operations to use. Should I add?  Should I subtract?  
    Should I multiply?  Should I divide?  
    What KEY WORDS do I see?


                   WE CAN SOLVE ANY WORD PROBLEM!!!!

    When we read a word problem we follow these steps.
    R READ -  We READ the question TWICE.
                1st time just to hear it.  2nd time to circle KEY WORDS in the question.
    DDRAW - Next we draw a PICTURE to show our work.
    W WRITE -Then we WRITE our answer in a math sentence with LABELS.

    So, if we READ, DRAW & WRITE we can solve any problem!
