Looking for a fun and unique math center idea? This set of logic puzzles will give kids hands on practice with logic and problem solving!
This huge resource provides kids with a fun, hands on way to increase their logical reasoning skills!
This ebook includes 40 reproducible puzzles so you can print as many as you need for your home or classroom. They are similar to sudoku puzzles, except using shapes instead of numbers. Using pattern blocks as manipulatives allows kids to move them around easily until they find the right solution, rather than writing and erasing over and over.
Benefits of Logic Puzzles and Brain Teasers:
You may be wondering why puzzles like this are necessary or if they will benefit your child at all. I totally get that! Sure, they seem fun, but your kids already have tons of games! These puzzles, however, are not just meant to be fun to play with or keep your kids busy. They are designed to encourage learning through play.
Research has shown that logic puzzles and brain teasers boost brain activity and improve memory as well as concentration.
In addition to being a good and healthy workout for the brain, logic puzzles will increase your child’s math skills because math is logical.
Comprehending math computations and working through word problems requires logical thinking if you want your child to be successful.
Logic puzzles such as these strengthen logical reasoning skills and help brains learn to think outside the box.
