Happy Holidays! Ready to bring a little cheer into your daily math lessons? Try this Christmas-themed Word Problem a Day packet for second grade students. This packet contains 12 Christmas Word Problem task cards (in both color and black & white), student versions (to be used with an interactive math journal), student recording sheet and answer key. Each word problem is labeled with the Common Core State Standard that it covers. There are several ways that these daily word problems can be used in the classroom:
Version 1: Project the PDF version of task cards on an interactive white board and have students complete their work on the recording sheet or in a math journal.
**Please note: Four task cards are included per page. If you choose to project the PDF, you will need to scroll & zoom in on the designated task card question for the day.**
Version 2: Print out task cards, laminate, hole punch and put on a binder ring. Read the daily problems out loud to students and have them complete their work on the recording sheet or in a math journal.
Version 3: Provide students with their own version of the word problem to glue into and complete in their interactive math journal.
