The video preview above will also give you an idea of the scope of this huge bundle!
Here's how these riddle task cards work:
Choosing from four numbers on each card, your students will determine the answer by solving to eliminate three of the options. They'll be having so much fun searching for the secret number that they won’t even realize how much practice they're getting!
The riddle card sets include 20 to 24 riddle cards each (336 in all!), supports for differentiation (like number lines and 120 charts), recording pages, answer keys, and related games.
The math topics in this set include...
> Addition Through 10
> Mixed Addition and Subtraction Through 10
> Subtraction from 10 or less
> Missing Addends
> Missing Subtrahends
> Three Addends
> Themed sets for autumn, winter, and the 100th Day
> Adding and Subtracting Tens
> Adding Two Digit Numbers with No Regrouping
> Mixed Practice with Two-Digit Numbers (place value, comparison signs, odd/even, coin values, etc.)
Here are some ways that you might use these task cards in your classroom:
> Use in a math center for individual or partner work
> Use with your document camera for whole class review or to focus attention at the
beginning of a math lesson
> Use as a skills review rotation (aka "Scoot"), individually or with partners, with
your students moving to stations around the classroom to solve the clues
> Use for morning “bell ringers”
> Use as challenge work or for early finishers
> Use as an activity with classroom volunteers – they can complete as few or as
many as time allows!
> Print in black and white to use in interactive notebooks. Give one puzzle to each
student and have them write or talk about their thinking in solving the riddle.
