Favorite Activity! Riddle Boards!

Recently had that moment we all love!  Former student talking about what he remembered from our year together!  To say that this student was a reluctant reader was an understatement......but the math activity that he just loved was my riddle boards.  He remembered that every month I put out a new set of  riddles.  You can tell how easy it is to make these boards.  All you need is a sheet of poster board and library pockets.

I am always collecting riddle books---garage sales, dollar stores, the library!  I look for riddles in themes!  Sometimes, I do holiday thematic riddles but I always do math riddles.  One board can work all year just by using velcro each month to change the questions.  Mine are all color-coded to make it easier to keep organized.  

The day I remember was when he went to the library and checked out all the riddle books to the surprise of our librarian.  Then he asked for post-it notes and started to flag the books.  I asked him what was he doing and he responded that he was finding next month's riddles.  Ah, reading all the while!  Children love riddles, the sillier the better!  Teach on my friends!
