Product Description
These Tens Word Magic Square Puzzles Math Center Games make it quick and easy for teachers to provide hands on activities that meet the needs of all students!

Have your students practice recognizing their number ten words and matching them to the actual numbers for 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120.

With this Magic Square you will get one Magic Square, but three versions. The first Magic Square has the outside numbers as the word version a second time. However, they will not line up with the actual numbers correctly because they are on the wrong side. The second Magic Square has nothing around the outside. This will allow your youngest learners the support they need. The third Magic Square has the number words for 1-12 around the outside. This way you can choose the complexity level and differentiate for your students.

Preparation and Storage: You will need to print off the number of copies you need. (I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them.) I have used these as individual work, partner work, and small group work. They also work well for students who finish early or for use during center time. Cut the magic squares out and put them into plastic baggies for students' use. I put each set in its own plastic baggie. Then I put all of these baggies and one original sheet in a manila envelope with the name of the activity on the front. This way I have the answer key and all materials readily available.

Directions to Play: Give students the cut-up magic square sheet. Tell them they need to put the square back together. The first time you have the students complete one of these, I suggest drawing out a 3x3 square on the board so they understand what it should look like. You can also give them the hint (because I have found some do not figure this out!) that the animals will all be facing the correct direction.

Correcting Student Work: To easily check a student's completed work, keep an original copy of the magic square sheet they are working on. This way you can immediately check to see if the animals are in the correct order or not.
