Looking for an engaging activity that will help you easily implement daily spiral review of first grade and second grade math vocabulary and skills? This set of primary level math riddle posters for one through 120 is a resource you'll use all through the year!

* Attention Customers! If you already own any of my other math riddle sets, you can be assured that the clues in this set are completely new and different from those in the other sets! No repeats = more learning!

This resource does not have any clues using US coins, making it useful for international schools or for teachers who haven't yet taught money.

In order to be successful with these riddle posters, your students should be familiar with basic addition and subtraction, odd/even, tens and ones, adding and subtracting tens, and comparison signs for equalities and inequalities.

What does this resource include?

* 120 full page printable posters that can also be used with your favorite apps!

* 7 "Do Now" cards, printable either as full page posters or as 1/4 page size task cards

* Student recording page (handy if you choose to use this as a math center activity!)

* Answer key

* Two 120 charts for additional support as needed

How can you use these cards with your students?

* Display a new poster each day for your students to solve as they settle in for the day's learning activities. They're great as an easy-to-use low prep morning activity, and will help you guide your students into a predictable morning routine to build personal responsibility.

* To extend learning, display one of the seven “Do Now” cards. Students can complete them as suggested on the cards, but they’d also make great entries for Math Journals!

* "Do Now" cards can also simplify your differentiation. Give different students different Do Now cards according to their needs and their strengths.

* Teachers are using math riddle cards for hall bulletin board displays! Think of those lost moments that could be filled with learning ... waiting outside the lunchroom, rest rooms, special area classrooms, etc. Make the most of learning opportunities for your own students and all students in your school!

* For a whole class review activity, distribute a poster to each child, give a few moments to solve, and have the children line themselves up to leave the classroom by putting themselves in numerical order.

Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?
Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.
Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.
