What Do You Do With a Problem Book Activities:

These activities for What Do You Do With a Problem by Kobi Yamada are perfect for 1st-4th grade. This picture book works perfectly with What Do You Do With an Idea? and What Do You Do With a Chance?.

The activities in the book companion focus more on the concepts presented in the story and less on the content (although comprehension questions are included in list form and task card form).

In addition to the task cards and worksheets, you will also find a variety of activities where students can practice finding opportunities in real-life problems and a growth mindset reflection page.

Instructions are also included on how to set up a “Problem Patrol” in your classroom to assist students in solving problems (or receiving suggestions on how to manage problems).

I hope this product will help your students learn how to find the gems of opportunity in problems. There is also a focus on how to deal with worries that students can control and worries that students can’t control (and it would even be perfect for a counselor facilitating a group for students that focuses on anxiety, worries, or problem-solving skills).

This file includes activities about the following:

  • Discussion questions and task cards
  • Solving problems anchor charts
  • Opportunities
  • Growth mindset
  • Problem Patrol
  • Journal Writing
  • Problems create worries
  • Problems on pendants
  • One problem, three opportunities
  • Go away worries

Here are individual links for each Kobi Yamada Literature Unit:


This product includes a digital option (as well as the no prep printable option). The instructions for utilizing the digital portion appear at the end of the packet.

This PDF product contains 37 pages + Google Slides™.

    This was just what I was looking for to add to my math instruction. I find with multi-step too many of my students solve part of the problem or do not understand all the steps that must be followed. This work will provide valuable additional practice on this challenging skill.

    This material works really well with my high school students who have intellectual disabilities. Although they are not as cognitively aware as their non-disabled peers, they still have typical teenage problems. This resource helps us work through dealing with various issues.

    I turned the cards in this activity into slides to use in Seesaw in 2nd-grade. After reading “What Do You Do With a Problem” I read the cards to the students. In Seesaw, there is a recording feature, so I also recorded the text for students who did not attend the virtual classes. I also provided the pages for students to complete. The student response to these cards was that of praise! I was moved to 3rd-grade during the week of Veterans Day, so I plan to use them again, this time in Google Classroom.

    Thank you for this awesome resource, Kirsten!
