Number Ninja (Hundreds Chart Puzzles)

Number Ninja STICKER 1I’ve put together some puzzles to help kids become more familiar with the hundreds chart.  I want my kids to be so familiar with the hundreds chart that they can make one by themselves on scratch paper during a test, and can also identify patterns in our base-10 number system. I’ve made a series of puzzles that increase in difficulty.

Telling Time Worksheets – Blank

Time telling STICKERAs standardized testing draws near, it’s time to review! I made this blank clock worksheet so I can draw in the hands to review whole hours, half hours, to the minute, etc. depending on the grade I’m teaching. When making materials, I try to make them transferable between grades when possible. I’ve made 2 whole sheet pages and a half-sheet.

Math Problem of the Day

Math problem of the day STICKERI’ve seen this idea many times before, but I’ve most of the pages I’ve seen are too “cutesy” to get away with in 6th grade. I made this one that’s pretty standard and has enough space for kids to adequately explain themselves. Although kids don’t like this kind of assignment, it’s where the standardized tests are trending towards. The more practice kids get, the better prepared they’ll be. I recommend doing a problem everyday that focuses on the topic you’re teaching, so that by the time testing rolls around, your kids are used to these kinds of questions.
