Think Boards are a wonderful device for helping students solve word problems. The student is prompted to use five different strategies to help solve the word problem. The strategies used are: ‘Draw a Picture’, ‘Use a Number Line’, ‘Use a Ten Frame’, ‘Write a Number Sentence’ and ‘Make a Tally’. The word problems in these resources deal with addition sums to ten. This bundle brings together four types of word problems: Result Unknown, Change Unknown, Start Unknown and Compare.
