    Are you looking for resources to teach problem and solution in the classroom?

    Exploring picture books with problem and solution plots helps your students see a problem being introduced, how the character(s) try to solve it and how they finally resolve the issue.

    In picture books with problem and solution scenarios, your students will see characters who:

    • use knowledge to solve problems independently
    • predict outcomes
    • think things through
    • make good decisions
    • try new ways to solve problems
    • make mistakes and try again
    • recognize breakthroughs
    • use trial and error to find a solution

    In this bundle, you will find literacy activities for 7 picture books and activities about problem and solutions. The resources and graphic organizers are no-prep, fun and engaging.

    Here's what you'll get in the BUNDLE:

    ⭐️A Bad Case of the Stripes

    Your students will love digging deeper into each book while developing their comprehension skills. The activities are open-ended so they can work at their own level and speed.

    These resources are perfect to use in literacy centers for elementary students. They can also be used for:

    • reading and writing workshops
    • substitute plans
    • small group instruction
    • independent work
    • assessment


    • These resources are supplemental products. You can choose the most relevant pages for your needs and the ability and understanding of your students.
    • The purple text on the ‘Teacher Notes’ pages is specific to the book. These ideas are my interpretation but they will give you a head start.
    • The questions and activities are opinion based, so there are NO answer keys. The activities were designed to be open-ended for easy differentiation.
    • Please ask any questions before purchasing.
