What educators are saying

My students had so much fun with this riddle activity! Thank you for helping to engage them in their learning and push their thinking to the next level.
We used these in the first week of school. It's a great fact review, then they get to solve a riddle. It took a few of them a bit to figure out how to do the code, but they liked them. Thank you!
