Can you believe that May is just around the corner? Are you gearing up for the end of school? Public schools here are finished pretty early, so they are counting down the days! We are not quite there yet, however, so we’re going to plow ahead to the end of May and celebrate the end of our year in early June. But it’s all good! Because I have a brand new **May math problem of the day calendar** to squeeze in some daily math challenges! Similar to my past calendars, this is packed with all kinds of **math skills to review** as you wrap up the school year.

**How to Use the May Problem of the Day Calendar:**

If this is the first time you’re trying out my problem of the day calendars, let me explain. This is more than simply a math problem to solve each day of the month.

These are unique because **the solution is equal to the date**.

This allows for kids to **self-check**.

This is also helpful if the problem is a little more advanced than your child is used to, because though they may not know how to solve it right away, they know *what the solution is supposed to be*.

They can then use problem solving strategies and **prior knowledge** to try and solve it.

Obviously, you will want to use the daily problem to have a math discussion, because kids could simply write the answer without *doing the math*. So just be sure they know they must **explain their thinking** for each problem.

And as always, these calendars are in **black and white** on a **single page** for easy printing. 🙂

**Included in the May Math Problem of the Day Calendar Pack:**

This download includes **2 different versions**, one for grades K-2 and one for grades 3-5 (labeled for your convenience).

**Topics Covered on the K-2 Calendar:**

- Addition and subtraction within 20
- Place value
- Early multiplication
- Comparing numbers
- Sequences
- Word problems

**Topics Covered on the 3-5 Calendar:**

- Addition and subtraction of 3-digit numbers
- Place value
- Multiplication and division
- Area
- Adding mixed fractions

These calendars can be **used in the classroom** during your calendar time, as morning work, a fun daily competition, etc. or they can be **sent home with parents**, making it easy for families to have **quick, daily math time at home**!

So whether you are wrapping up your school year or not, enjoy this fun, daily math problem with the kids in your life! 🙂

April 28, 2016 at 6:03 pmI picked up this wonderful Math problem calendar for April and introduced it to my 7 year old that I homeschool. She loves it! She also quickly picked up on the fact that the answers to each equation correspond to the day of the month…LOL.

Thank you for offering these clever calendars for free! So appreciate them!
