# Problem Solving In Math For Grade 2

Students should also be able to create their own models.

You’ll see how I sometimes gave students copies of the model that they could glue into their notebook and sometimes students drew their own model.

They could underline the question and they could find the numbers.

Most of the time, my students just added the two numbers together without making sense of the problem. I am a big proponent of NOT teaching keyword lists.

Once kids have the tools, they need to be able to apply those tools to a variety of problems and come up with effective solutions.

Through Math Game Time’s free problem solving videos, children learn how to solve word problems and apply their math skills to other scenarios.

In section one, students solve routine problems that focus on specific math concepts (number, patterns, measurement, geometry).

In section two, students use specific strategies to solve non-routine problems.

The beauty of the blank spaces is that I can put any numbers I want into the problem, to practice the strategies we have been working on in class.

At some point, we do create a list of words, but not a keyword list.
