But what exactly are these?

Here are the highlights of this resource:

Math content is CCSS aligned for each grade.
You can assign this resource guilt-free because although it's a lot of fun, it IS helping your students practice the curriculum that you are teaching them.

Questions address a variety of skills, promoting spiral review of learned content.
Operations, graphing, fraction, time, money, and a lot more. You name it, it's in there! Each puzzle clue prompts your students to use skills that you want them to remember all year!

Word Box promotes correct spelling of Math Vocabulary.
Spelling practice for numbers, names of shapes, names of fractions, time, and all the vocabulary we use in math is not something most of us have time to implement. This resource provides students with the opportunity to very carefully spell math words.

Students integrate reading, writing, math and reasoning skills.
This is such a great opportunity for students to integrate everything that they've been learning in school! To solve a puzzle, they need to read the clues, solve the math, write the words, and figure out how to make it all go together!

The 3 grade levels available allow you to differentiate instruction.
Our students need support and a challenge now and then. You can give each student what they need simply by going a grade up or a grade down.

Puzzles lend themselves to a variety of uses.
Use them in a Math Center for the whole year, use them as Morning Work, as a reward, as work kids can do if they finish early, put them in your Sub Binder... you get the picture!
