Story Problem Tip #4

Math
Today I’m sharing with you my last story problem tip for the month! If you missed my past tips, check them out below…
Today’s tip is all about students creating their own story problems. Another way to get buy in and engagement is to let students write their own story problems.  Students love it because it can be about what they like and can be about themselves or their friends. This also offers a chance for differentiation. Some students can write multiplication problems, while some might still be working on addition.  Students can also be working with numbers that fit their comfort level.
The other neat thing you can do is let other kids solve their story problems. In the past, after having kids write their own story problems – I type them up and then have the class work on them.  They loved it!  While it can be “fun” solving the teacher’s problems, it’s even better solving their friends.
