Creating a "Problem of the Day" Notebook allows the students to practice solving word problems on a daily basis. This sample of the "Problem of the Day" will give you enough word problems to try out the "Problem of the Day" for one week. You can use it during the week leading up to Halloween.
In this set you will find 5 different (Halloween themed) word problems. Each page has 8 copies of one problem. You just need to copy as many as you need of each page, cut them out and use one problem each day. The students can glue the "Problem of the Day" into a notebook and solve it. I have also included a copy of each problem that can be projected on to a board to be used to review the problem with the class.
This is a great activity for your students when they walk into the classroom in the morning or as a starter to your math lesson. It also gives you a chance to discuss and practice problem solving strategies on a daily basis.
