When working with first grade students, it's important to start from where they are. It is also important to focus on thinking concepts. For instance, think about this word problem: A man has 10 balloons and the wind blew 4 away.

How many are left?

Here's another way to ask the question: A man was holding some balloons and the wind blew 4 away. He only has 6 balloons left, how many did he start with?

Too often we ask questions where the unknown is at the end of the question, but the unknown can also be put at the beginning of the question.
