I now use these Backwards Story Problems as a daily/weekly activity for students to work on with a partner. I use them in small guided group with my struggling students. It is exciting to see the students use their imagination and knowledge of what they have learned to create story problems for their classmates to solve.

I began including these activities in daily math centers for students to work on in small groups or with a partner. I am using them in my small guiding group for struggling students. It is great to see how far some of the students have come and how they use their imagination to create story problems for classmates to solve.
