Nothing helps students see math problems more clearly than counting books. Starting the problem solving process off with some favorite stories just seems natural...
Inside you'll find 12 of our favorite stories and problems to go with each. There is a week of problem solving to go along with each story. Use them all, or determine your own pace.
There are 3 formats included for each problem:
1. Journal Strips - Students glue these into their journals and solve. A week of problems per page. Simply makes copies for each student in your class and your weekly problems are ready.
2. Problem Pages - If you are not using journals but still want to decide the strategies your students will use.
3. All-In-One (Problem Pages Plus Strategies) - These pages are ready to go and NO PREP!
**You already have this packet if you purchased my A Problem A Day Bundle
. These are great problems to start beginner problem solvers on and then build upon.
Happy Problem Solving,
