Explain Write the following on the board: Tiffany and her sister Rose measured out the ingredients for their favorite recipe. They needed one more can of tomato sauce. “I’ll go to the store,” Rose said. “But I need to memorize my spelling list. Will you help me after dinner?” Tell students they will identify problems and discuss the actions taken to solve the problems.
