Try These Free Kindergarten Math Riddles!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

If you're looking for an engaging way to build number sense with your kindergarteners, try riddles!

Yes, I'm back talking about riddles again, but I'm sold on the value of using all sorts of riddles in your teaching!  If you have any doubts, the next time your class is unfocused, off task, or cranky (it happens to the best of them...), just say the word "riddle" and watch them perk up!






These free kindergarten riddles will bring that kind of enthusiasm to your classroom! Here are a few ideas for using them.

* Start a math lesson by solving a riddle together.

* Connect riddles to your number line  and sequence of numbers lessons. These riddles have lots of clues that require your students to locate a number/s on the number line, along with using words like "more than", "less than", and "between".

* If you ever have a spare moment to fill (it's been known to happen, really...!), solving a riddle is a great way to keep the learning moving ahead!

* Riddles are an awesome way to squeeze in some spiraled review of math vocabulary.

* Riddles are a great way to build a foundation for comprehension skills like identifying key details, making inferences, and drawing conclusions.

* Once you've practiced solving a few riddles, try writing one together. Morning Meeting is a wonderful opportunity for this. Write a riddle for 6 on the sixth of the month, for example. You might even try bringing math into your shared writing lesson!
