*Math Maze Freebie at the end of this blog post*
A comprehensive math curriculum is great – until it isn’t. While there may be more lessons than school days, it doesn’t mean your math curriculum will always have exactly what you need for your students when they need it. Imagine having a quick single-page printable that focuses on just the standard your students need to practice? A page that is independent from the curriculum, simple enough to be sent home for homework without an inbox full of confused parents, and engaging enough for cheers instead of moans.
Math Mazes will enhance your existing math curriculum, save you time, and motivate your students to master essential mathematical skills.
Ideas for Organization
Each grade level is sorted into 4 sets by Common Core Standards. Each maze is numbered and aligns with a standard, so you and your students can easily find the maze you’re looking for. Here are a few ideas to get you started!
Print the standards list, mazes, and answer keys. Put everything in one convenient plastic folder, easy to pull out and make copies as you plan and teach throughout the year.
Math Maze Student Folders
Set students up for success by making math mazes a habit from the start.
Make a copy of all mazes for each student, punch holes, and put in a three-pronged folder.
Throughout the year, assign mazes to students to complete by the individual maze number.
One-at-a-Time: Math Notebooks
Print mazes one at a time based on your needs.
Change printer settings to print 2 per page.
Cut pages in half.
Students can glue the half sheet math mazes into their notebooks before solving them.
