Hello, we introduced the Do it, Prove it, system for maths just after Christmas and now that is embedded we are having a problem solving lesson once a week - the aim being that the Do it etc carries on with the problem solving lesson (I guess each problem is supposed to get progressively trickier). Today I tried, and utterly failed, word problems - they were unable to read some of it and then unable to figure out what it meant. On reflection, I could have used simpler vocab so that is on me, and made it more simplistic in general. I was just wondering how others go about word problems or problem solving/reasoning in general - I found it easier with the older children as they could unpick the language. They do some reasoning through the Do it, Prove it, Use it system but as a whole lesson I am coming up short with ideas. Help. Thanks in advance.
