September Problem Solving Pack
I’m trying to stay ahead of the game and I’ve gotten my September Problem Solving Pack done and school starts in two days!! Happy dance!! I’m ahead of the game in the problem solving pack area until the end of September.
These are a sample of the pages that are included! If you have my August Problem Solving Pack, this pack builds on that one. You can click on the picture above to get your September Problem Solving Pack. 🙂
The numbers 11-20 are included. 🙂
There are 3 pages similar to this to get students ready for addition.
This page helps students sort different sized/oriented shapes into two groups.
You can also get my August Problem Solving Pack if you don’t have it by clicking on the picture below. 🙂

Spring Problem Solving Pack
I finally got the new problem solving pack done! It snowed here last night, into today, 9 inches! So much for the first day of my Spring Break! It is supposed to be in the 50’s by Saturday though…still…it’s Spring!! 🙂
This pack is designed to cover April and May. It’s got 45 activities in it…and assuming you’re in school every weekday from April 1st to the end of May, you will have one for each of the 42 days that are included in that time. 🙂
Here are some pictures of the new pack. If you click on any of them, it will take you to my Tpt site where you can purchase it for your own. It is a little more expensive than my other packs, but it contains 2 months worth of activities, so I priced it accordingly. 🙂 It covers a wide range of Common Core Standard skills and I made each activity last at least a week, so you can really practice each skill with your students. 🙂
Let me know what you think!
March Problem Solving Pack
Back by very popular demand!! I’ve had probably 100 e-mails and messages asking when and if I’ll be creating a March Problem Solving pack….so here you go! And it’s done before March! That’s because today we had a snow day, well and ice day really, but we got the day off due to the freezing rain and sleet that fell over night last night and made the roads horrible today.
I had some time to finish up this pack and get it posted.
It covers 9 different standards and focuses on some common core standards we are working on this quarter. I had a couple of requests for 2D and 3D shapes and some ten frame/base ten block work, so those are included as well. I also included an optional Math Journal cover, so that if you wanted to, you could print all the sheets out (there are 25 sheets) and use them individually with your students. I use some of these sheets on my Promethean Board and then print out some for my students to work on individually. They would also be great in a Math Work Station or Center!
You can click on the picture above to find out more and download a sample of some of the sheets that are in this pack. 🙂
I’ll be working on April’s pack soon–any requests for that? We will be working on addition and subtraction, composing/decomposing numbers, and some 3D shapes. 🙂 Let me know what else you’d like! 🙂
January Problem Solving
I’m on a roll creating things for my classroom (and posting them for sale in my TPT store!). I’m trying to get as many things made as I can during winter break so that I can have some free evenings to train for the Mini-Marathon in May. 🙂
This time, I created a 30 page pack of sheets that can be used during math for your students (and mine) to reinforce the Math Common Core Standards K.OA.1-5. There are at least 5 activities for each of the 5 standards and these would be great as morning work, as a math journal, or as independent/small group work. They would also work on an interactive white board (SMART Board or Promethean Board).
These are the 5 standards I’ll be focusing on the most this next 9 weeks, as that’s what my data indicated I needed to teach more about. 🙂 I’ll be using these in conjunction with other mini-lessons and then these will be used for reinforcement. 🙂 I’ve even included an optional cover page if you wanted to make these into a January Math Journal. 🙂
You can click the picture to go to my TPT store and check out the preview and the whole pack. 🙂
I’m trying to decide if a February Pack would be in the future. 🙂
