The "Problem of the Day" is probably one of my favorite routines for the classroom! I ended up starting this routine as prep work for verbal story problems... and the kids loved it!
I know a lot of teachers do math journals with their kids, which is somewhat similar. I have thought about doing those, but certain tests, like the IOWA Test doesn't allow for students to use scrap paper to solve their math problems, so I use my problem of the day to focus on counting with our fingers and using other mental strategies, as well as to enhance fact fluency.
This set, for May, focuses on addition subtraction word problems within 20. It is aligned to Common Core Standard 1.OA.A.1 .
