⭐What people are saying about this resource⭐
"I have a cluster classroom so this ws great. I put it on Goggle classroom, and let my students use it when they had free time. It was very engaging, and fun."
"We've been using these as warm up questions. They love that it isn't directly "math" (equations) and I love that they get really into solving these and getting their brains thinking outside of the box! Thank you!"
"I use these for early finishers. They enjoy solving the puzzles. They are practicing but do not feel they are doing extra work."
"Great Morning discussion or showing it during transition and discuss and they are lining up or when they are getting ready to go home at the end of the day. My students will stop doing what they are doing and they will listen to the question and hate when someone answer without raising their hands."
