Problem-solving is an engaging, rigorous and student-centered way to teach math. It allows students to develop their own strategies for solving real-world problems and teaches them to communicate mathematical ideas in a meaningful way. This packet has 45 math problem-solving prompts designed for the second nine weeks of kindergarten, all aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

Problems include addition and subtraction problems focusing on developing a solid understanding of the base numbers 5 and 10, problems designed to help children explain their thinking and record solutions in a neat and organized manner, multiple-step problems and measurement problems.

Domains covered include:
*Counting & Cardinality
*Operations and Algebraic Thinking (composing/decomposing numbers, basic addition/subtraction, comparing numbers)
*Measurement and Data (classifying and counting, comparing lengths and weights)
*Mathematical Practice Standards to focus on each week.

Also included are extensive teacher notes and questioning prompts to deepen students' mathematical understandings during share time.

Each problem has a cut and paste prompt, or a 2.63 x 1" label, if you prefer to print on labels.

Fluently add and subtract within 5.
Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
