In our district, we use a problem solving process called Understand, Plan, Do, Check. We call it UPDC for short. It's based on the work of George Polya. We have a district poster describing the process, but we've been wanting one more appropriate for our primary classrooms. I asked my 1st grade teachers for suggestions on the wording, and this is the poster I made based on their suggestions. What do you think?
UPDATE: Had to make the intermediate one a little more kid-friendly, too! Click on the captions to grab yours!
