These circular puzzles have 8 pieces
for numbers 0-20
, so you can easily differentiate
for your students’ various skill levels.
So that you can practice a variety of standards
all at once, each piece has a different way to show that particular number.
Being able to differentiate is particularly helpful when you have struggling students, as well as those who need to be challenged with higher numbers, without additional work
Perfect for extra practice and review of those toughie teen numbers
There are two “frame” options
for the “ bases” which students place the pieces on. One has numbers 0-10
around the edge, while the other has numbers 1-20
framing the circle.
There are also two base options
as well. One is labeled
, the other is not.
Puzzles can also be put together without using a base.
For a super-fun math center
, which students can work on independently
, simply print, laminate & trim the full color puzzles.
I keep each puzzle in a separate ZipLock Baggie, then place numbers 0-10 in one tub and numbers 11-20 in another, which is located in our math center.
So that students can easily select a puzzle for their level, I’ve included labels
for the front of your Baggies and two tubs.
The labels look like little cards
so that you can print extra sets and use them for sequencing
or a “Memory Match” or “I Have; Who Has?” game
You can also use the colorful center circle puzzle pieces in the same way.
I’ve also included black & white versions
, which you can use for interactive math notebooks, homework
, small group instruction, early finishers
The black & white patterns are very versatile
Besides students making their own puzzles, you can also use the templates as a worksheet
tool, as students fill in each section with the appropriate answer.
Besides number recognition, the puzzles will also help with +1
and -1 simple addition
, greater & less than, subitizing
, making a group/set and number word
I also challenge students to count by 5s
when they are figuring out their tally marks
Doing two puzzles side-by-side, will also allow students to compare and contrast
, as well as see math patterns
As your students become adept at putting the puzzles together, have them pick a partner and race to see who can complete theirs first.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you and your students enjoy these math centers.
