From the new author of Maybe, this What Do You Do With a Problem? activities file now includes a digital distance learning option in Google Slides™. Please refer to the final 7 pages of the file for the link and instructions.

This activity packed literature unit for What Do You Do With a Problem by Kobi Yamada is a perfect for 1st-4th grade. This picture book works perfectly in conjunction with What Do You Do With an Idea? and What Do You Do With a Chance?.

The activities in the literature companion focus more on the concepts presented in the story and less on the content (although there are comprehension questions included in list form as well as task card form).

In addition to the task cards and worksheets, you will also find a variety of activities where students can practice finding opportunities in real life problems as well as a growth mindset reflection page.

Instructions are also included on how to set up a "Problem Patrol" in your classroom to assist students in solving problems (or receiving suggestions on how to manage problems). Please check out the preview for What Do You Do With a Problem? prior to purchasing.

My hope is that this product will help your students learn how to find the gems of opportunity in problems. There is also a focus on how to deal with worries that students can control and worries that students can't control (and would even be perfect for a counselor who is facilitating a group for students that focuses on anxiety, worries, or problem-solving skills). Please let me know if you have questions prior to purchasing this literature unit.

Also, be sure to check out the new book by Kobi Yamada called Maybe. You won't be disappointed!
