2nd Grade Word Problem Creations!

Wow! These past few days have been crazy busy! Things have really been clicking in 2nd grade! Both of the 2nd grade teachers that I work with on a regular basis have had their students start making word problems using Explain Everything. This might sound easy, but there are a lot of steps involved in this process! For this activity, we got scrapbook paper and stickers from Hobby Lobby and used them for our illustrations. Students would first take a picture of their scrapbook paper and set it as the background. They would then take a picture and use the "lasso" tool to crop it out. Next they would use the "duplicate" tool to make X amount of copies to match their problem. They would then group the batch of pictures. From there, they would either write (type) their word problem or take a picture of it hand-written and paste it into their picture. Finally they would record the problem while moving their grouped pictures around! *Exhales* Seems like a complicated process no? Not for my awesome second graders!
