Smorgasbord before Spring Break - Tall Tales and Word Problems!

Spring break has started for us, THANK GOD! I needed this time to rest and relax. It's been a very busy couple of weeks. Here is a snap shot of a few things we did this past week.

The finished Paul Bunyan tall tales. The turned out so cute! They are just the right length on our classroom clothesline that hangs from the ceiling.

Side view of the Paul Bunyan's. You can find a post about my tall tale unit here. Still have a few to give away. 

From social studies to math - we have started writing our own word problems for problem of the day. You can read about my guided math block and how I use word problems here.
This picture shows the problem of the day basket. It includes setting cards, number cards, and recording papers.

You can get a copy of the word problem unit here.

A finished product! It's even a multi step problem.

My kids have loved solving each others problems for problem of the day. 

How do you incorporate word problems into your classroom?
