If your child has trouble with math, a graphic organizer can help. Graphic organizers help kids break down math problems into steps. They’re great tools for figuring out what’s being asked in a word problem or which operation to use. Kids can also use them to learn new math concepts.

There are many types of graphic organizers. The five here could work for students of all ages. You and your child can adjust them depending on your child’s needs and the math problem or topic.

Each graphic organizer comes with instructions and one or two samples of what it looks like filled in. You can print them out and have your child fill them in by hand. (If your child struggles with writing, you can write in the problem and let your child do the rest.)
