I love to use games and puzzles to promote strategic thinking and problem solving. I believe that problem solving is the core of a quality elementary math education. I use these two great resources in my math workshop block:

  1. Mathpickle
  2. ThinkFun Free Puzzles and Strategy Games

I hope you find them as amazing and as useful as I do.






Thanks so much for the great resources. I just looked at one of the “Mathpickle” activities, and can’t wait to try it with kids!!
