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 the story problems that are on the Kindergarten IOWA test... and my kids just love it!
I know a lot of teachers do math journals with their kids, which is somewhat similar. I have thought about doing those, but unfortunately 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.
This set, for January, focuses on basic addition stories that can be solved by putting up the individual number of fingers on each hand.
This routine is aligned to common core standards K.OA.1, K.OA.2, and K.OA.5.
