Looking for something quick, easy & fun
that your kiddos can do on leap day
and still practice standards
How ‘bout a number puzzle
I’ve included a huge variety of puzzles that sequence
numbers from 1-10, count backwards
from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s
There are over 60 in all. Some are vertical
, while others are horizontal
Pick and choose your favorites to make a collection of choices for your students.
Print, laminate & trim the full color options
and use as an independent math center
Use the black & white
ones, so that students can color & cut up their own puzzle.
For an interesting “craftivity”
have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of construction paper.
Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip, to create an especially cool mosaic effect. Completed projects make a cute bulletin board
To mix math with literacy
, have students choose either the horizontal or vertical writing prompt puzzle
Children complete the “If I could do anything on leap day I would . . .”
writing prompt, then cut and glue their “poster prompt” to a sheet of construction paper, creating the mosaic picture mentioned above.
Besides the full-size puzzles, I’ve also designed a set of “Happy Leap Day!” 4-on-a-page mini puzzles
, as an inexpensive little surprise
that you can give your students.
There are two picture
options, plus one is horizontal, the other vertical. Choose the number 1-10 puzzle for PK kiddos and use the skip counting by 10s to 100 for K-1st.
Print, trim, and put in a Snack Baggie, then attach one of 3 “Happy Leap Day” header options
These “headers” can also double as a bookmark
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you have a lovely leap day!
