This free sample includes five pages from Homework For Thinkers, which offers a variety of one-page problem-solving activities that cen be used any time of year.
Homework For Thinkers is a collection of open-ended activities that invite many different types of responses, so they can be used more than once during the year. Some of the activities are designed to be used over and over. Included are activities that support math concepts, literature response, observation, reading and/or writing skills, and more.
Any of these activities can also be used in the classroom.
And... they are perfect for substitutes!
