New Year's Celebrations are exciting for all in the month of January!

Bring excitement and fun into your classroom by having your students solve a NEW YEAR TRADITIONS logic puzzle and MATH WORD PROBLEMS.

This is a great resource to keep students in grades 5 – 7 learning in a meaningful manner when they get back from the holiday break.

  • Number Word Search
  • 10 High-INTEREST Math Word Problems
  • Multiple-step math problems which require close reading in order to make sense of the problem and persevere in solving them
  • Informational Text About London’s Big Ben Clock and New Years Traditions
  • New Year Traditions Logic Puzzle

Math skills needed for this activity:

• 3-digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division

• Subtracting time, knowledge of minutes in a quarter-hour, half-hour, etc…

• Measurement equivalents, for example, 8 ounces equals one cup

Why Math Word Problems?

Word problems require higher level thinking skills in order to:

  • Read and understand the problem
  • Identify the question and what is being asked
  • Distinguish what information is needed
  • Create an equation
  • Solve the problem

It's important that kids learn how to think. Word problems show students how to use math skills in real-life settings. Being able to read a math problem and decide which equation it takes, such as multiplication or division, is one skill. Being able to multiply and divide is another skill. All are important for success in life.

This packet is perfect for sub plans, Math centers, group work, independent work, or early finishers

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
