This Nursery Rhyme Word Problems lesson plan also includes:
Enough solving word problems! It's time to write some! Collaborative groups use PhotoStory (or another slide show program) to present original word problems to their peers, basing the scenarios on familiar nursery rhymes. Groups start with some guided practice, discussing the elements of an effective word problem before creating one of their own. There are debrief questions listed to help with discussion, and the rest of the class stays engaged throughout presentations as they try to solve each word problem. Find several illustrated nursery rhyme handouts attached to this lesson for printing. There is also an exit pass assessment problem.
