Countdown the month with a problem of the day. Students keep a folder with a monthly calendar, problem solving strategies, and a problem for each day of the month. Problems are often multi-step and require some thinking. Excellent for individual work (differentiating within your class), whole or small group, math tasks, centers, or simply a problem of the day to tackle. Unit includes monthly themed calendar, 30 focused word problems, answer sheet for teachers, adorable monster themed "steps to problem solving" mini posters, and photos of project put together. All you need are the file folders. Happy problem solving this month!
