So here is a quick, cheap and easy idea to make number puzzles!
I use these ALL the time in Math Daily 5 for Math by Myself.
Foam cut outs from the dollar store
Step 1: Figure out what you want to make your puzzle about! Depending on your kids, decide how many pieces each foam piece will have. In the beginning of the year, I like to cut them into 2 pieces. As the year goes on, I add more pieces and more parts to put together.
Step 2: Use a sharpie to draw/write on the foam pieces. (use sharpie or it will smear!….lesson learned)
Step 3: Cut into pieces and store in a ziploc bag.
Step 4: Students take out the number puzzle…sort the puzzle pieces and solve! If need be, you can create recording pages to go with!
