Five months of math word problems to use as bell-ringers or for review!

Covering the months of January through May, there is one unique problem for every day, including February 29th. This resource can be used every year as the information is timeless.

Each problem contains a factual historical connection to the date. It is fun and interesting to learn these facts while practicing math skills at the same time.

Some of the skills that are included:
- basic computation
- fractions, decimals, and percents
- mixed numbers
- factors and divisibility
- prime and composite numbers
- ratios
- metric system
- area and perimeter
- symmetry
- time
- expanded form
- and more!

The word problems were written with the CCSS for grades 4-6 as a guide. Many of the problems contain extraneous information and numbers that are not needed in solving the problem. Daily practice helps students improve their ability to identify the essential information and correctly set up the problem.

Every problem is given three ways:
1) in a sequential document
2) two per page for distribution of half sheets
3) individually for projection, complete with illustrations.
You can choose the format that suits your class. Please open the preview to see examples of the different problem presentations.

Each month's document includes a printable student answer sheet. Also included are answer keys which give the solution to each problem with "the work" shown. It also lists the skill(s) used in each solution as well as the general topic of the problem. Again, please see the preview.

NOTE: This is a zipped file containing 6 PDFs.

Each of the five monthly resources is available separately. Preview the individual months to see more examples of what is included in this bundle.

This bundle represents a 20% savings compared to the cost of buying each of the five months separately.

The months of the first semester, August through December, are also available individually and in a money-saving bundle. View all of the Word Problem of the Day - Intermediate Level resources here.
