This math problem solving game is appropriate for winter of first grade. Students will be asked to solve problems that include addition and subtraction of 2 and 3 numbers. They should be encouraged to solve using any strategies that they have learned, including pictures, number sentences, number bonds, ten frames, number paths, etc. To prepare: Print out a set of the Blizzard problems and laminate for durability. Hang the problems around your classroom at various locations, or up and down the hallway. Copy one recording sheet per student. To complete the activity: Assign students a problem solving partner/team. Tell teams to find a problem to solve and begin by solving on their recording sheet. They should solve independently first, then they should compare answers. If their answers do not match, they should help each other and try to find the error. This is how they check their work. Sometimes, I play music while they switch problems. Much like Musical Chairs, they must walk from problem to problem until the music stops. Then, they stop at the nearest problem to solve. This adds an element of fun to the activity. Happy Problem Solving!
