These 2nd Grade Word Problems of the Day contain real-world applications of the second grade math standards. This nine month Word Problems bundle includes 30 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 rigorous, multi-step Problem of the Day word problems give students practice and exposure 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.


• facts within 20

• addition without regrouping

• addition with regrouping

• subtraction without regrouping

• subtraction with regrouping

• place value

• money

• part-part-whole tables

• start-change-end tables

• drawing pictures to model the problem

• length word problems

• visual models of area and fractions

• multi-step problems

• adding three numbers

• addition beyond 100

Some pages can be completed by students independently while others are intended for students to experience a productive struggle as they work to apply what they know. 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 independently. Some problems include many steps to reach the solution while others require students to explain their work.

The sets provide enough pages 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.

Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
