Demystify word problems with this classroom resource that provides daily practice for boosting problem solving skills.

This powerful resource goes beyond routine word problems to build reasoning skills with a variety of methods, such as using visual representations, analyzing various approaches to solving routine and non-routine problems, and showing how these skills apply in real-life situations. Each weekly lesson plan equips teachers with a thematic unit that hones in on a standards-aligned skill. Throughout the unit week, easy-to-use lessons outline activities to strengthen critical thinking skills with multi-step, higher-level problems.

Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
