Get students thinking ALLLLL about the number of the day!!! For my class, we always begin with our problem solving journals, always! I use this for those early finishers or for the days where we don't do our problem solving journals! It fits perfectly into student's interactive notebooks!
Building number fluency is KEY in elementary!!!!
*I always choose students to randomly pick the number of the day! They love it as sometimes it can be challenging when we throw in some decimal or super big numbers.
