I love Pinterest! I can't believe how many terrific ideas I have found there (I also can't believe how much time I've been spending there!). Today I followed a repin of one of my pins and I discovered an amazing math website. I'm always on the lookout for good math activities for Tier 2 to challenge my high kids and this website does the trick. I can't wait to introduce the Skip Counting Icicles, Soccer Practice, and the Addition Boomerang. The third grade Unsolved Problem could keep my kids busy and engaged for weeks! All the activities I looked at (I teach third but the second grade activities are perfect for this time of year) will challenge even my highest kids and (heaven forbid!) make them think! The website has videos for teachers describing the activities, Powerpoint slides to use with the class, and worksheets for K-12. Check out mathpickle.com and let me know what you think!
