I use the Problem of the Day in the GO Math! teacher's manual as my activating strategy, and have compiled all POD's in one teacher (and kid!) friendly .pdf file for use in the classroom. These are quick, easy, NO PREP activating strategies for your kiddos that get them ready to start a new lesson, or would work well for review after a lesson, too! I've also included a key vocabulary page that contains all vocabulary from each chapter, and easy to complete pages including clipart and calendars to make it easier for your students to complete.
*UPDATED* Now these handy workbooks can be printed double sided to make it easier for you to use and prepare! To print to a double-sided printer, you will want to select double-sided with short-edge binding. You can also print these single sided and then copy them double sided. On my printer I have to alternate the orientation of every other paper to get it to print correctly.
Check out my store for the POD Notebooks for the ENTIRE first grade Go Math series!
Please note - these are not my own questions, these are the questions listed in the Go Math! teacher's manual. I have simply retyped them into an interactive journal format for first grade students.
