Problem Solving: Super Spy Math Intervention

Are you looking for a way to engage your students during math workshop, guided math, math centers, or whole group math teaching? This problem solving pack is perfect to help your kids during your mini-lesson and/or intervention time

What's Included
The mini-lessons:

Before the fun super spy can begin, I created intervention pages that you can use in math small group or during a whole group mini-lesson.

4 days a week my school has, WIN (What I Need), which is an intervention time for math. I used this unit to cover 2 weeks of problem solving.

There are 3 days of problem solving pages to be used during intervention. However, 5 questions are a lot so if you are wanting this to be a mini-lesson or small group, one page can cover two days!

Use this to best suit the needs of your schedule!

THE SUPER SPY ACTIVITIES
How it works:

Kids will be given two main problems to solve. Both of the main problems are missing a key number in order to solve the problem.

Kids must first solve the problem that says: to find the missing number section.

Once they solve, they come to you to check, this is because we want the kids to not cheat (it happens y’all). Use the answer key for easy checking 

Once they get the find the missing number section correct, have them draw a super spy mission card. They must do what is on the card in order to get the next clue. When I did this activity, I let them work in partners, so they had to draw two cards and do both in order to advance. Keep the cards after they draw.

Once the kids have finished their “mission”, they can go grab a final clue card. You can have the option to hand it to them, OR, you can place them in a bucket so they can grab them on your own. This depends on your teaching style!

The missions spiral money and place value (you even get review, yay!

The answer to the final clue card is the number that goes in the missing blank!

NOW they must solve the actual problem! WOAH! So much math but I swear ALL my kids were PUMPED! Ha!

Google “Mission Impossible” music on Youtube. There is a 10 hour clip of the music. Turn off the lights, let them use flashlights! Use backlights and black paper the windows! The kids had so much fun!
