I include the puzzles in black and white. I also include a full color version of each puzzle which you can use as the answer key. In order to suit everybody´s needs I also include the answer keys in black and white, and in color too. That makes a total of 60 pages. Please let me know if you have any specific need!

2 of the puzzles can be used to celebrate Constitution Day or Independence Day. The rest are typical Back to School scenes. After the children have colored the puzzles, you can cut out the picture portion of each printable to decorate your classroom :)

*** I include an EDITABLE version of the puzzles so you can customize them with your own text: Your students can color by number, color by sight word, color by… you decide! The coloring pages can be used with whatever content area you are working on, so you decide what goes in them! :)

*** For the editable pages you need "Microsoft Office Power Point". You can also use "Open Office" which is free:

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
