Using Riddle Sheets in Your Math Centers

Here's an idea to use those math worksheets in your math centers or stations. You can even add a little fun to it with riddles!

Riddle Sheets are a way for students to practice a specific math skill but in a fun way. Students solve the problem and find their answer down below. They write the letter in the blank for the answer. These are great for self-checking practice! My students always enjoyed solving for the answer to the silly riddle.

OPTION 1: Use the Riddle Math Worksheet As Is

Riddle Sheets can be added to a math station or math center as is. Just make enough copies, put in a folder, and put the folder at the station or center.

Differentiate -  Have different skills in different colored folders and assign students a color. 

OPTION 2: Cut the Riddle Math Worksheets Up

Now if you want want to use these in a way that looks less like a worksheet, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Print out one copy of the riddle sheet you want to use in your station. Grab some colored index cards (or cut up some colored paper), scissors, glue stick, and a small binder ring (missing from photo).

Step 2: Cut the riddle sheet up by each problem keeping the letter with the problem. Also, cut off the riddle with answer blanks. Glue each riddle problem to an index card or colored piece of paper.

Step 3: Laminate the cards if desired. Punch a hole in the corner of all of the cards and put them on a binder ring. You can make enough copies of the riddle for each student, or you can laminate one copy for students to use with a dry erase marker.
