Mrs. Yollis' third graders have been working with the computer teacher, Mrs. Minicozzi, to write multiplication and division story problems.
First, students chose a X/÷ fact family and wrote the four equations.
6 7 42
6 x 7 = 42
7 x 6 = 42
42 ÷ 7 = 6
42 ÷ 6 = 7
Second, students selected one of the fact family equations.
Third, students wrote a story to match the math equation. Fictional characters were used as the main characters.
Finally, students used the computer program called Pixie to illustrate their story problems.
What was the most difficult part about creating your Pixie pages?
What advice would you give others who are using Pixie?
