Movin' on Up ... Multiplication Riddles!

Dear Teaching Friends,

Are you looking for another way to keep the fun in your math centers and small groups? Try math riddle task cards! They're a great way to provide your students with lots of practice with math skills in a novel format.

Faithful readers know that I've been all about creating math riddle task cards lately. Although most of my resources are K-2, the latest in this series is movin' on up to third grade  - multiplication riddles! Here's a sample.

Here are some ideas for using riddle task cards:

*  For whole class review, use a card with your doc camera

*  In a math center for individual or partner work

*  To focus attention at the beginning of your math lesson, these make a great activity, again with
    your doc camera

*  For a fun skills review rotation, have your students move around the classroom ala "Scoot!",    solving clues either individually or with a partner

* Solve a few cards together as part of a small group lesson

*  Use as morning bell-ringers

*  At the other end of the day, use for exit tickets

*  A fun no-prep activity for tutoring

*  Keep the riddle cards handy for early finishers

I think you'll find this set will be a fun and useful addition to your classroom!

Happy Teaching!
