A Model Drawing Schedule

Model Drawing, also called Bar Modeling, is the most commonly used problem solving strategy in Singapore Math.  Our students struggled with it in the beginning.  When we reflected on our teaching, we decided they needed more practice with one model before we moved on.  This is a sample of what our schedule looked liked as our students became more successful.  I mention in this video that we wrote 10 versions of each problem.  In a two-week span, we used 6-7 of them.  The rest were saved to be review problems other weeks.
