Build Math Vocabulary and Number Sense with Riddles!

Hello, Teaching Friends!

Let's keep the fun in learning! Here's a quick and easy way to build number sense and reinforce math vocabulary while you and your students are also having fun!

Your first and second grade students will love using the clues on these twelve cards to figure out a number between one and 120. Each card has a multi-step riddle that has clues about basic addition and subtraction, coins (pennies, nickels, and dimes), comparing numbers, adding and subtracting tens, and place value.

*Note: If you're already using Set 1 of these riddles. add these cards to your collection! This sample is from a new and completely different set!

Here's what's GREAT about teaching with riddles:

1) They're an easy way to easily fit some spiraled review into every day.

2) While you're reviewing math concepts and vocabulary, you'll also be modeling and practicing with inference and drawing conclusions! WOW - that's a two-for-one that makes the most of your teaching time!

Happy Teaching!
