More Riddles... A Freebie!

Hello, Teaching Friends!

Do you like using riddles with your class? Good, because I'm becoming a bit obsessed with making riddle resources.

I've made autumn riddles, winter riddles, alphabet riddles, Thanksgiving riddles, and number riddles.

So now I've decided to make... uh, riddles again.

This time I'm venturing into some new territory, the intermediate grades. 100 Riddles for the Hundred Chart is one of my most popular resources, so I thought I'd make a version for fourth and fifth grade.

There are 100 riddles for the numbers 1 through 100. For each number, there are 2 to 3 clues, each addressing a different standard. CCCS topics addressed include multipication, division, remainders,
prime numbers, factors, multiples, place value, geometric shapes, area, perimeter, and more.





Have a closer look...





Here's a free sample from the pack. If you're reading this blog, you're most likely a primary grade teacher. Could you help me by passing along this freebie to an intermediate friend? Thanks!!










Happy Teaching!

  7. I so agree, Sarah! Speaking and listening are the foundation for reading and writing, and we need to get that base set even before picking up books and pencils ... and continue to develop it even beyond! That's one reason why it saddens me to have heard several intermediate grade teachers say that curricular demands (read, "tests") have squeezed their time so much that they have no time to read aloud to their classes.

    Thanks so much for the FB shout out! :)
