“Class, today we’ll work on word problems in math!” cheers Ms. Enthusiastic with a slight jump and rah, rah.
The class is filled with shouts of…
“I just don’t get this.”
“Ms. E., I think I’m going to puke. Can I go to the nurse?”
“But…, I have a great new poster with key words…” Looking around the class Ms. E. sees heads drop and a few more students clutching their stomachs. Half heartily she continues, “These words will make solving word problems so much easier.”
