This 9 month bundle includes 32 story problems for each month of the school year (Sept-May) that build students' problem solving skills through guided and independent practice of the standards daily.
These second graded Problem of the Day story problems contain real-world application of the standards and are intended to be rigorous guided and independent practice activities with varying levels of difficulty. The units begin with students identifying if the unknown is at the start, change, or the end only working with numbers within 20. It continues to scaffold and build throughout the year leading up to students working with addition and subtraction with and without regrouping, counting coins in word problems, working with time, arrays, and fractions in real world formats, and working with numbers beyond 1,000. April and May include all multi-step problems increasing the rigor of students' practice.
Some pages can be completed by students independently while others are intended for students to try to complete what they can, and then gone over as a class. The purpose of varying the difficulty of the skills is to build confidence in students’ problem solving strategies, while also pushing them to try new strategies. Some problems include many steps to reach the solution while others require students to explain their work.
30 pages are provided each month so that a page can be completed each day, if you wish, with additional pages going home for independent practice. These can be easily printed and stapled for daily use, or these are also perfect for inclusion in interactive notebooks.
