Are you looking for a new twist to add to your daily calendar routine in first grade
? Try calendar math riddle cards! This sample set of six cards will help your students solidify their knowledge about both months and math.
Here's an example:
"The name of the month has nine letters.
It's a number that's more than 10+10.
It's three less than 31.
What's the date?"
There are lots of opportunities for learning about both months (sequence of the month, initial sound of the name of the month, number of letters in the name of the month, what the name rhymes with, etc.) and math (sequence of numbers, early addition and subtraction, addition strategies, number patterns, ordinal numbers). Plus, riddles are a fun and easy way to teach identifying key details, making inferences, and drawing conclusions.
The riddle cards are provided in blackline, but they print well on bright solids for a fun alternative!
These riddles are samples from the complete set of 60 Calendar Math Riddles for First Grade
. The complete set also includes an answer key, a short introductory video to use with your students, and additional support materials.
