KenKen Puzzles Make Math Fun!

KenKen puzzles are a FUN and FREE way for students to have fun developing their mathematical reasoning and number sense skills.

I love math games that naturally bring out kids' mathematical reasoning. KenKen puzzles are perfect for this. As warm ups or early finisher activities, KenKen puzzles allow students to explore their number sense while also having fun. So without further ado, here is Alexander from KenKen with a guest post he so graciously wrote for us.

"My New Year Matholution!" math pennant activity to set New Year's resolutions in math class

Looking for a way to set new year's goals in math class? This math pennant is in the shape of a new year's horn and allows students to write out their goals and get a little creative decorating their math classrooms. The math pennants then act as reminders of their new year goals.

As adults we love making New Year's resolutions and goals for changing our lives in the new year. I'm going to hit the gym, eat healthier, stretch more, turn my phone off at night. A new year represents a fresh new start and who doesn't love that?
