Here's what teachers have said about this resource:

  • "This totally changed my Math routine! We are encouraged to use number talks but I find them so boring and repetitive, especially in 3rd Grade. I chose to start our lessons with this instead and we get in great number sense discussions, quick strategy lessons, and the kids always want to do ¨just one more!¨"
  • "I love this resource and my students do, too. Riddles are a great way to get their brains spinning and to love math."
