SUGGESTIONS for use:

Challenges for early-finishers. A great activity to keep the faster students engaged (and quiet) while others are working.

A daily puzzle to reinforce skills... Use one each day the week of Valentine’s Day.

Add the puzzles to a sub-plan if you need to miss school. Be sure to leave the solutions with the sub and an extra copy for them to do.

Use the cARTesian puzzle as a COLLABORATIVE activity. Using large graph paper posted in the room, students work together to create the work of art. Cut out each box of coordinate pairs and distribute the sets of points to individual students. You can differentiate for individual students, as some sets include more points than others. Have them plot the points on the graph. This can be done over multiple days or during one class period. Once complete, students can add detail and color to their creation and display it on a bulletin board or wall.

Throw a party (but don’t call it that)... add candy hearts and do math puzzles (now, that’s a party!)
