“This is perfect for my early finishers who need to keep focused while those around them are still getting their assignments done. I like how challenging and enriching they are — all wrapped into one.” –Susanne
The challenges are leveled for easy differentiation.
It’s a struggle to find resources to meet the needs of ALL students in a diverse classroom. Having early finishers in the same classroom with more needy students can be overwhelming.
To extend the thinking of your more capable math students, you need fun, engaging and challenging math extensions at your fingertips!
Having these 20 challenges in a print and digital version with answer keys ready-to-go will save you tons of planning and searching time. You can have students who are working digitally doing the same challenges as those who are working in-person.
- Each activity targets mathematical reasoning and thinking. They are fun yet rigorous and also build perseverance in problem-solving!
- Each activity includes the use of Common Core Mathematical Practices and the Texas TEKS Process Standards scaffolded for easy differentiation.
There is a beginning story that introduces Jute the Giraffe and Thomas the Turtle. These two characters have very different problem-solving approaches. They appear from time to time on the challenge pages to add humor and give support to students who tend to give up and not persevere.
If you need something at your fingertips to keep those fast finishers engaged, thinking, reasoning, and using number sense…this is it! 🙂
