Regular visitors here and at my TPT store know that I'm a big fan of teaching with riddles. Here are some reasons why I think riddles are a great teaching tool!

*  Because you need to listen to ALL of the clues to solve a riddle, teaching with riddles builds listening skills.  You'll also see your students' attention span grow!

*  You'll be checking off the standards when you teach with riddles, because riddles are the perfect way to model identifying key details, making inferences, and drawing conclusions!

*   Solving a riddle often depends on the use of prior knowledge. Connecting the clues with schema and using prior knowledge takes lots of practice.  As you talk through the thinking process in solving a riddle, your students will learn to use connections. Ask questions like, "How can you use what you already know to help you figure this out?"

* Riddles are SO MUCH FUN!  Kids love them, and beg for more. But to have a shot at solving them correctly, your students must read (or listen) carefully, and THINK!
