### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are your students solving novel word problems on a regular basis? Are they able to explain in writing how they got their answers and the strategies they used? Give them this valuable practice now with these Problems of the Month (POM) Math Packs.

All of my POM packs incorporate monthly themes to make the problems more relevant and fun. I use the POM packs twice a week, and my students critical-thinking and writing skills are improving! We continue this practice monthly until the big state tests in the spring.

Each pack contains a mix of problems—some easier than others! These are solid, grade-level problems, and many are multi-step and require thinking, interpreting, strategizing—all those good critical-thinking skills! Students may need to PERSEVERE in solving some of them! (Sound familiar?? Mathematical Practice #1)
