PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Homework for Thinkers - Problem-Solving Fun

No-prep problem-solving for homework! This resource packet offers a variety of one-page problem-solving activities that cen be used any time of year. They are theme-free and support a variety of content areas and basic skills while giving students interesting opportunities for low-stakes problem-solving practice.

Most of these are open-ended activities that invite many different types of responses, so they can be used more than once during the year. And some of the activities are designed to be used over and over. Included are activities that support math concepts, literature response, observation, reading and/or writing skills, and more.

Some of these activities can supplement specific lessons, but any of them can stand on their own to offer review, practice, and/or problem-solving practice. Several include a writing component of some kind, and many include drawing or coloring as an essential component of the task. For the most part, parent help should not be required for students to complete these activities.

Any of these activities can also be used in the classroom.
And... they are perfect for substitutes!

The resource includes 76 activities, as follows:

Around the House - 9 pages - sort, categorize, count, observe
Draw and Write - 11 pages - prompts for drawing before writing
Color Combinations - 6 pages -- color, add, and compare
Working with Patterns - 9 pages - extend, create, interpret, describe
Counting Money - 8 pages -- count, draw, skip-count, add
Observe and Compare - 6 pages -- describe similarities and differences
What Goes in the Box? - 8 pages -- add, subtract, and find the unknown
See It • Draw It - 7 pages -- observe, draw, resize, rotate, and more
Story Problems - 13 pages -- draw to help solve word problems

••• See preview for more details about the contents. •••

Several of these activity pages include “blank” templates so teachers can make additional, similar worksheets, or for differentiating according to student need.

Share2Learn and Creating Art With Kids lessons and resources are designed to focus primarily on the learning process. They are intended to be open-ended enough to encourage student creativity and detailed enough to give teachers clear direction.
