Problem Solving with Story Boxes, Grades K–2

Problem Solving with Story Boxes invites children to pose as well as solve problems. Students move from solving teacher-posed problems to creating their own picture problems. They construct and share their own strategies for adding, subtracting, grouping, and partitioning. Created to complement Box It or Bag It mathematics, these materials can also be used to enhance any K–2 curriculum.
