This packet of 10 problem solving stories will help your Pre-K and Kindergarten kids build critical thinking and problem solving skills. (57 pages)
Use these as slides on the projector or print out on paper.
Read the stories to the children while they look at the pictures. The pictures give clues to what might have happened. Then ask children to solve the problem in the story, or tell why something happened. There doesn’t have to be one answer, some children might come up with different solutions.
Be sure to check out the Preview for examples and more info.
These are short, simple stories. They are not intended as a story time book, but just for use as a problem solving activity.
