Recently, there are new Try This 2 Word Problem Booklets were launched available only on the ORL. We hope that everyone has had a chance to start to use them in their centers. Just because there are new Word Problem Booklets, this does not mean you should stop using the previous Word Problem Booklets that are available from Distribution. Both set of Word Problem Booklets have benefits to the students in your center.
There are 40 Word Problem Booklets available through Distribution. These booklets should match the student’s CTM level. These booklets are available for Levels 5-15. These booklets were specifically designed to incorporate multi-step word problems to better reflect the needs of the U.S. market. The first booklet of each level has explicit instructions so the students can complete the booklets in a self-directed manner. The purpose of these booklets is to help students apply what they have previously learned. Some of the questions can be challenging; this gives students exposure to how the current skill can relate to advanced concepts.
For levels 5-9 there are two booklets per level. The first Word Problem booklet should be given after booklet number 24 is mastered. The second Word Problem booklet should be given after booklet number 30 is mastered. There is a curriculum chart available on the ORL to record the booklet information. On the first line, you should write the date the booklet is completed and the score that was received. On the last line, circle the question number that was marked incorrect.
For levels 10-15 there are four booklets per level and an assessment. The booklets are given out after mastery of booklet numbers 21, 24, 27, and 30. The assessment is given out once the four booklets have been completed. On the first line, record the date and score of the booklet. On the third line, circle the questions that were marked incorrect on the booklet. On the fourth line, circle the questions that were marked incorrect on the assessment. On the side, write the date and score of the assessment.
We hope that everyone is able is use both sets of Word Problem with the students in your center.
