Are you a 2nd or 3rd grade teacher looking for some FREE math activities to challenge your advanced math students? You can use these math challenge and brainteaser printables as math centers, morning work, math contracts, fast finishers, small group activities, or problem of the week!
With students on so many different academic levels, attempting to find materials to meet the needs of every student can be utterly exhausting! If you have a few students who always seem to be finished with any math assignment you concoct, then these math challenges can be a simple solution for your advanced math kiddos who start looking bored on day 2. (or whose parents approach you at Back to School Night telling you their sweetie will be bored on day 1)
This exclusive freebie includes 5 math challenges and brainteasers you can’t find anywhere else to help you get started personalizing math instruction for your advanced mathematicians.
The two math challenges include a multi-step problem page with room for student work + a lined page for them to write about their mathematical thinking.
The three math brainteasers include a “School Sentences” equal equations printable, a Seating Arrangement logical thinking activity, and a multi-step “Who Am I” activity that asks students to determine the sum of 5 mystery numbers they must determine through place value, counting, time, and money clues.
Answer keys are included for every problem, so you can hand off grading to a helper, or not have to think too hard if you’re doing it yourself (because you’re probably doing it yourself).
Sign up below to get the exclusive math challenges and an e-mail series with some tips and tricks to start differentiating right out of the gate. PLUS there just might be another cool editable freebie in your future (hint, hint). Just sign up and then check your email for the freebie!
Have a fab day Super Teacher!
