As you know, many of the children I have worked with find problem solving difficult so I like to use graphics to aid their understanding. By getting to read the question CAREFULLY and following the steps the children can begin to see how the problem can be solved and how we show this numerically. I would hope that in the future, they might be able to draw their own graphic to help them. If you would like a copy of the sheets then click on the picture below.
I know the children have been fascinated by the fact that carrots do not only come in the colour orange!!

What new fact about a fruit or vegetable have you discovered recently? Are you growing any differently coloured carrots in your gardens at the moment?
