These Problem of the Day word problems contain real-world applications of the second grade math standards. These rigorous, multi-step Problem of the Day word problems are guided and independent practice pages giving students practice and exposure to the standards with varying levels of difficulty.

The month begins with students identifying if the unknown is at the start, change, or the end only working with numbers within 20. The month gradually builds so students are working on two-step problems up to 100 (without regrouping).

Skills included:

  • facts within 20
  • addition without regrouping
  • subtraction without regrouping
  • place value

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.
