This packet was originally created as a weekly homework activity aligned with Common Core Math for First Grade. It is designed to strengthen student’s problem solving skills.
In my class, I send it home on Mondays. If a student returns it by Friday and it is solved correctly, they get a silly band. This is a great incentive for my First Graders. We often use children’s completed work as examples for sharing or even display.
I have seen a marked improvement in my student’s problem solving skills since using a weekly problem solver at home.
There are four different problems which tie in to all months we are in school.
