Focused on Fifth: Products for Payday Linky

Today I am linking up with my fellow bloggers from Focused on Fifth to share some of our favorite products for fifth grade. This has been one of my favorite products for a few years. I first made this product when I was teaching first grade. It's called "What's the Question?" It integrates problem solving with writing and is designed to help students develop deeper mathematical understandings. You give the answer and allow your students to create the story and question that leads the mathematican to the answer.  It works great for use in math centers, small groups, homework, and whole class teaching.

I updated the product and added 48 new pages specifically for the upper elementary classroom when I moved to fifth grade. So the product is a lot bigger and contains more possibilities. There are pages for fractions, large numbers, all operations, and ideas for differentiation. To increase the difficulty you can require specific operations, two-step problems, etc. The possibilities really are endless.

Clicking on any picture of the product will take you to TpT.

Product based on the following article:
Barlow, A.T. and Cates, J.M. “The Answer is 20 Cookies. What is the Question?” Teaching Children Mathematics (2007), 252–255.
