Make math FUN this Winter!

The winter months can be long and cold for many of us (with everyone hoping for a snow day!).  In my classroom, it is also a time when I feel like I have the longest stretches of uninterrupted instructional time with my students. With many of the fall and winter holidays behind us, it leaves more time to focus on the curriculum.  Why not make the curriculum and computation fun at the same time??

Engage your students with these Winter Math riddles worksheets! I began creating math riddles to make math more fun in my own classroom. 

Enjoy riddles like these...
What did the guests sing at Frosty's birthday party?
What do you call and old snowman?
What is Frosty's favorite kind of cake?
Who was Frosty's favorite aunt?
Why don't mountains get cold in the Winter?
How does a snowman get to work?
What does a snowman eat for lunch?
And many more...

I love hearing my students giggle as they solve the riddle at the end of the worksheet. Students solve  problems, each problem has a letter assigned to it and the letters help to solve the riddle. It is a great way to combine fun and learning!

  1. I agree that I do love this time of year because I feel like we can actually dig deep to learn and many students come back from winter break a little more mature and with things "clicking". I'm sure students love solving the riddles! Do you have a sample of what the riddle sheets look like?

  2. Hi Kathie,
    Thank you so much for your interest, I have posted a couple of sample images of what a riddle page would look like. I'm hope this is something that your students will enjoy! And hope these images are helpful. :) Have a great day!

  3. What a cute way to engage students during the long winter. I agree, it's definitely a time of year that students need something extra to keep them motivated.
