Many students seem to need extra practice with word problems, so I created a journal for students to practice one problem each day. There are a total of 20 word problems with a December/holiday/winter theme. The problems are basic, two steps with addition, subtraction, or both with minimal regrouping. Students are asked to show their thinking, write a number sentence, and then write a sentence about the problem.
Each word problem is one half page, and a cover page is included. Simply staple the pages together, and the journal is ready to go! The daily word problems are a nice addition to a daily guided math program, a daily math warm-up, a work station, or homework.
