These Problem of the Day word problems contain real-world applications of the second grade math standards. This nine month 2nd Grade Word Problem 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 are guided and independent practice pages to 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
• 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.
