Read, Draw, Write
RDW or Read, Draw, Write (a Number Sentence and a Statement)
Mathematicians and teachers suggest a simple process applicable to all grades:
2) Draw and Label.
3) Write a number sentence (equation).
4) Write a word sentence (statement).
The more students participate in reasoning through problems with a systematic approach, the more they internalize those behaviors and thought processes.
