Differentiating Word Problems Using A Poster Board

Fun Facts:

I love the song in this video (It Ain’t Me x Selena Gomez) and I LOVE this poster board even more. Ehhhh…. I guess I’ll give one more fact. This poster board helped me accomplish my goal of growing every student and over 90% of my students passing their end of the year exam, also known as, STAAR.

What is the purpose?
During small groups, we want to make sure we have activities that are beneficial to every student (individualized instruction and practice). The best way I have found myself catering to each child’s needs is through this math poster board. It also helped me track the students’ growth and document important specific information when needed. Students’ who are advanced would work with Level 3 and 4 questions on a certain concept, whereas my lower level students would work with Level 1 and 2 questions and work their way up.

How to make the math poster board?
I recommend you print out every page of this resource on colored paper to attract the eye. After printing, cut out each part and follow the instructions on the intro video.

How to use the poster board?
Make copies of any questions you would like (STAAR test questions, Campus Common Assessment questions, workbook questions, etc.). Categorize the questions into 4 levels:
Level 1: Questions usually have pictures and symbols with little to no words.
Level 2: Questions usually have a combination of pictures, numbers, and words.
Level 3: Questions usually have more numbers and words with little to no pictures.
Level 4: Questions are usually word problems.
