FREE Critical Thinking Challenges

What quick tasks can I use on a regular basis to promote critical thinking? 

Logic puzzles help students develop solid critical thinking and problem-solving skills in the early grades and are a great way to engage students. In addition, they are fun and provide lots of opportunities for students to share what they are thinking and how they determined the solutions. Weight Logic puzzles do exactly that and they reinforce algebraic thinking at the same time.

 

To complete the weight logic puzzles, students use the sum of the symbols shown on the scale to determine the value of each symbol. For many students, this task seems simple. You guess and check the values until you find a combination that works. But that level of thinking is just the beginning. The real critical thinking comes in when students use strategies, other than guess and check, to determine the value of each fruit.

April Activities Just for You
By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

Turning my thoughts to sunny days and warmer weather!!! Can’t you just smell spring in the air? Daffodils beginning to bloom, Lilac trees starting to flower, and Lilies of the Valley popping up. I just love the aroma. Not only is my birthday in April but it brings us Passover, Easter, and one that you may never have heard of, can you guess? If you said Jelly Bean Day, you’d be right.  I don’t know about you, but I looove jelly beans. They come in so many awesome flavors, no I don’t like the black ones, but I had an aunt who used to love them.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Daily Math Warm Ups Sampler FREEBIE”

by I Love 1st Grade by Cecelia Magro

1st Grade

 

 

Daily Math Warm Ups are an easy way to get your students brains ready for math in 1st grade. This pack has 10 slides (1 week worth of lessons) as well as a practice page that corresponds with the day. Simply project and teach!

This freebie is a great way to check out my product line before buying.

We do Math Warm-ups every day before we begin our math lesson. They are a review of a variety of math skills based on the standards, that are completed whole group. After we finish our warm-ups, we are ready to begin our lesson of the day.

Since the lessons are done whole group, it is best to project the day’s warm up so everyone can see. You can project it from your computer or print it out and project it using your document camera.
Students solve problems on white boards. They can work in table groups, individually or with their elbow partner. You may also choose to use these as a small group intervention – whatever best fits the needs of the students you teach!

After you complete the two pages of the day, there are optional follow-up practice sheets that you may use as extra practice or as an assessment to see which students mastered the skills reviewed. Based on results, you can then teach small groups to review or enrich math knowledge.

These easy to use and rigorous warm-ups are a simple way to get your students ready to do math!

As always, please ask questions before purchasing. Thank you so much!♥

FREE Math Talk Questions Poster

 

What questions do I ask to encourage math talk? 

Creating a classroom where students are able to effectively use math talk during a classroom discussion can be challenging. Many of our
students do not know how to communicate their mathematical ideas and strategies using key math vocabulary and concepts. As teachers, we play an important role as we help students identify their thinking processes and build new knowledge by connecting to ideas and concepts that they already understand.
The Open-Ended Questions poster includes questions to promote mathematical communication in the classroom. You can use these questions to expand a conversation or to get one started. Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of the poster.

FREE Math Test Review Printable

 

Looking for a different way to review math problems? 

The Rock ‘n’ Roll strategy encourages students to explore the different aspects of the problem-solving process when reviewing math problems. This is a great strategy for reviewing test questions or reviews that have multiple choice answers. This strategy works best for
reviewing a few problems, maybe the most missed ones from an assessment or review, but it’s very effective.

FREE Mathematical Discourse Resource

 

Looking for a strategy to encourage mathematical discourse in your classroom? 

The “Who’s Correct?” strategy allows students the opportunity to evaluate the mathematical thinking of others and either agree or disagree with the person’s response. What I love about this strategy is that students do not just solve the problem, they must select a correct, or incorrect, response and provide a justification for the thinking of another. See the example above. 

Here’s how to use this strategy:
1. Create two responses to a problem (consider using a frequently missed test item).

2. Ask students to respond to the “Who’s Correct?” question and give a justification in pictures, words, or numbers.

3. Have students debate who’s response is correct (or incorrect) using appropriate models and mathematical vocabulary.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my “Who’s Correct?” images. To use them, insert them into PowerPoint slides and then add your own text. You can read more about how to use the “Who’s Correct?” strategy with your students here.

FREE Math Vocabulary Activity

 

Looking for a critical thinking activity to help your students with math vocabulary? 

The “Vocabulary Dominoes” activity requires students to compare and contrast terms, as well as, look for, analyze, justify, and communicate about relationships among the terms.


Here’s how it works:
1. Group students in groups of three. Assign students to be Student 1, 2, or 3. Note: This activity works best with at least 16 dominoes for a group of three.
2. Students spread out the face-down cards.
3. Each student takes 4 dominoes. Place the remaining cards in a face-down stack.
4. Student 1 turns over one of the remaining cards to use as the starter domino.
5. In turn, each student tries to connect one of the words on his/her domino to an end and justify the connection. If no connection is made, the student takes a card from the extra pile and tries to make a connection. If no connection can be made, the turn is lost.
6. The first student to place all of his/her dominoes is the winner.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my “Vocabulary Dominoes” template. To use the download: Insert the image into a Word document or PowerPoint slide. Just add a text box with each word you want to add and place it in the center of each half of the domino.

FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE: Finding the GCF & LCM Using a Venn Diagram for Fractions and Algebra”

by Scipi – Science and Math

5th – 9th Grade

 

 

This 8 page free resource begins with the definitions for the math words factor, greatest common factor and least common multiple, and continues by explaining and illustrating what a factor tree is and how to construct and use a Venn Diagram as a graphic organizer to find the least common multiple.

Also incorporated into this free resource is how to use the two circle graphic organizer to factor out the Greatest Common Factor for polynomials or algebraic terms. A detailed example is provided to show how this same process can be used in algebra.

One of the practice pages is entitled “What’s Missing?” and requires the student to read a Venn Diagram to find the two missing numbers, their factors, the LCM and the GCF. A half page of three blank two circle Venn Diagrams is included.

What if there are three numbers? A three circle Venn Diagram would be used. This is fully shown in detail followed by a student practice page. A half page of blank, three circle Venn Diagrams is added to the resource so that the students can practice.

This resource is an effective and valuable tool when teaching fractions. It is also applicable and helpful in algebra when students are asked to find the LCM or GCF of a set of algebraic terms such as: 25xy, 40xyz. (LCM = 200xyz; GCF = 5xy) or when they must factor out the GCF from a polynomial such as 6x2y3 + 9xy2. An answer key is included.

FREE Editable Task Sheet Template for Math Stations

 

 

Looking for a quick template to use to create a standardized task sheet for math stations? 

One of the ways I like to manage and organize my math stations is by creating a standard game directions page to include with any game that I use, i.e. card and dice games, board games, etc. Taking the time to create these from the start makes it easier for students to locate the directions and get started right away. On the game sheet, I include the following: Concept/Skill, Number of Players, Materials, Objective, and Procedure.
To help you organize your stations, I’ve created an editable freebie task sheet for you!
Here’s how to use it:
1.) Download the file from Google Drive.
2.) Open the PowerPoint file in Microsoft PowerPoint.
3.) Insert text boxes and add text to create the task sheet. Be sure to add a title!

 

Note: Hello Literacy’s “Hello Doodle Print” font is used in the template. The clipart is courtesy of Krista Wallden.

FREE Critical Thinking with Pattern Blocks Activity

Looking for a fun critical thinking activity to challenge your students’ thinking about shapes? 

Pattern blocks. I know what you’re thinking. When you inherited your classroom, there were gobs of these random shapes, maybe even a few buckets of them. You thought to yourself, “What am supposed to do with these? We only teach geometry and shapes for three weeks!” Well, did you know that pattern blocks can be used for more than just your three-week geometry unit? Pattern blocks can be used all year long!

The “What’s the Common Attribute” activity involves critical thinking with pattern blocks. This activity can be used year-round and makes a great starter activity, especially during that three-week geometry unit. The only prerequisite skills needed are some basic vocabulary terms related to shapes, e.g. sides, angles, congruent, equal.

Here’s how the activity works:

1. Display the puzzler on a white board or wall.
2. Ask the students, “What’s the common attribute?”
3. Provide think time.
4. Ask students to “turn and talk” to a shoulder partner, face partner, neighbor, or classmate to discuss the answer.
5. Have students share their responses with the class.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my “What’s the Common Attribute” pack. It includes 5 puzzlers to use with your students. It also includes a solution guide. Enjoy!

FREE MATH LESSON – “Kindergarten Problem of the Day – April”

by A Turn to Learn

Kindergarten

 

 

Have your Kindergarten students begin practicing mental math with this quick, easy, and FREE “Problem of the Day” routine! I ended up starting this routine as prep work for the story problems that are on the Kindergarten IOWA test… and my kids just love it!

WHAT TOPIC(S) DO THE PROBLEMS FOR THIS MONTH FOCUS ON?
This set, for April, focuses on subtraction stories.
(Scroll down to see the topics for the other months of the year.)

HOW CAN I USE THIS IN MY CLASSROOM?
You can use this however will work best for you! For me, this is a quick five minute routine that we do every morning.

My students really love some of the adaptations that we’ve done, including:
• adding their names into the story (on a rotating basis)
• using turn and talks (to explain their solution to a partner)
• describing their partner’s response (to encourage active listening)

Check out the blog post on the routine if you want to learn more about it!

HOW MUCH PREP WORK DO I NEED TO DO?
All you have to do is laminate, cut the page into four pieces, and go! That’s it!

IS THIS JUST ANOTHER MATH JOURNAL?
You could technically use these problems for math journals if you want, but this routine actually involves no paper and no pencils! If your students take the IOWA test, you know that the test doesn’t allow for students to use scrap paper to solve their math problems, so I use my problem of the day to focus on counting with our fingers and beginning to practice mental math!

WHAT TOPICS DO THE OTHER MONTHS HELP TEACH/REINFORCE?
Each month focuses on a different skill for your students to develop:
• August/September: Counting Within Our Classroom 
• October: Counting Games (Number 0-5) 
• November: Counting Games (Numbers 11-20) 
• December: Counting Stories 
• January: Basic Addition Stories (Numbers on Each Hand)
• February: Basic Addition Stories (Adding On)
• March: Subtraction Stories (Subtracting Numbers Less Than 5)
• April: Subtraction Stories (Subtracting Numbers Less Than 10) (FREE!)
• May: Addition or Subtraction Problem Solving 
• June/July: Addition or Subtraction Problem Solving

CAN I BUY ALL OF THE MONTHS TOGETHER?
If you want to save more than 40% and have a whole year of math word problems ready to go, you can purchase all of the sets as a bundle here:
• BUNDLE for the whole year

Enjoy!

FREE Fraction Activity

Looking for a great picture book to help your students understand multiplication with fractions? 

Fraction concepts are often the most challenging for students to grasp and teachers to teach. On top of that, fraction operations can be even more challenging to teach because students are unable to connect the actions of fraction operations with that of whole numbers. Students need a lot of experiences to develop these skills and build a solid understanding of the concepts.

 

One way to help students “see” the action of the operations is by using picture books. My favorite way to teach fraction multiplication is to start with Multiplying Menace. It’s a great springboard to introducing fraction multiplication. Not only will this book help your students “see” the operation, but it will allow students to compare the effects of multiplying whole numbers with the effects of multiplying by fractions.

 

To accompany the book, I created an activity to help students analyze the situations in the book. Click here or on the image to the right to grab a free copy the activity sheet. 

Want to know more? 
Head on over to The Routty Math Teacher website and check out my latest blog post, “Teaching Fractions with Math Picture Books” to read more about Multiplying Menace and learn about Multiplying Menace Divides. Read it here!

These two free weeks come from my 2nd Grade Math Morning Work Set. Week 4 gives a glimpse on how the morning work sheets are set up for the first half of the year, and week 21 gives a glimpse on how the morning work sheets are set up for the second half of the year.

The whole product covers and practices ALL of the common core objectives for third grade math.

Monday through Friday are on one page, so you only have to print one page for each student per week.

In addition to having work Monday through Friday, there is also a challenge problem for students to work on if they get finished early on any of the previous days. Basically, it is a built in differentiation piece.
