## Math Puzzles with Pictures

I’m super excited to finally have time to make these math puzzles with pictures for elementary students!  I’ve been wanting to use/make, but I just wasn’t sure how to create them.  I finally bought a puzzle maker to use with PPT, and WOO HOO – I’m so glad I did.  I’ve been having fun creating images for the puzzles, and then using the puzzle maker to make it come to life!

## Here’s how these math puzzles for kids work:

You pick the skill: (this is what I have so far)

• Telling Time
• Place Value
• Addition and subtraction within 20

## What’s included:

• There are 6 puzzles with each resource
• 1 sheet with math problems
• 1 sheet with puzzle all mixed up

## How it works:

• Students get two sheets (one with math problems and one with puzzle)
• They cut out the puzzle pieces that are mixed up – and have answers on each puzzle piece
• Then they find the math problem and answer that matches
• Next they glue the answer pieces onto the problem page
• Then once the picture is complete, they color it

## GREAT for:

• Morning Work
• Enrichment/Intervention
• Early Finishers
• Math Stations/Math Tubs
• Extra Practice

## want to create your own math puzzles with pictures for kids?

Here’s what I do:

• Decide on the skill I want to cover
• I use PPT to create these
• Create a grid/table (I did 3×3 for kindergarten and 4×4 for 1st and 2nd)
• Type in your math problems into that table (make sure each has a different answer)
• Duplicate that grid/table
• Drag in cute clipart (I buy on TPT – just make sure the clipartist allows for their items to be used in puzzles). Make sure the clipart is all within the grid
• Next – create puzzle pieces using this (BEARWOOD LABS). After you purchase his app, you will get an email showing you how to use it.

## Thanks… but I don’t have time to create my own??

Well, I’ve got you covered.  I will be adding these for every month!  If you follow me on TPT, you can see when I add them and grab them for 1/2 off within the first 24 hours.

If you go to my puzzles category, you can see them all!  I also have jigsaw puzzles within that category (read about those here!).

Currently (as of June 28th) I only have summer activities.  But my plan is to have a set for each month.

Hope these help!

Talk soon!
