Classrooms need to incorporate a range of methods to teach students a variety of skills. I'd like to point out that yes, hands-on and active learning experiences are still by far some of the best teaching strategies! However, there doesn't need to be a total ban (like I am seeing in some schools) on the traditional worksheet either. This post will outline the various reasons why balance is key and worksheets are not a total enemy!
With Halloween just around the corner, some of you may be searching for an activity that will keep your kids engaged and learning during what can be a crazy time of year. If you find it difficult to keep your kids on task and interested in the spooky season, some of the resources I've rounded-up in this post might help keep them doing something educationally productive, and more importantly, save your sanity! Some are free and some are paid, the links provided will direct you to where you can download these resources from. Good luck! I hope you are able to find something that will help and benefit your class.
I strongly believe in encouraging kids to attempt math tasks that are challenging. but fun. Math Quests are a great way to do that in the classroom or at home.
---- In case you've never heard of these teaching resources before, Math Quests are gamified worksheets filled with reading passages, math problems and puzzles. ----
So, what are Math Quests used for in the classroom? In this post, I aim to outline multiple ways these easy prep printables can be used as part of your curriculum.
