Accessible Math

A New Puzzling Option

Zukei puzzles are new to me and seem like a perfect springtime activity to stretch students thinking in new ways. While accommodations might not be needed for our spatially focused students, teachers could highlight one or two vertices to provide a scaffold if needed. These puzzles provide great geometrical vocabulary practice while allowing students to visually practice connecting the dots. These would also make a great laminated sponge activity for those times when you need a quick filler or have a few students in need of a challenge. You could also extend the activity by asking students to estimate and check the perimeter or to calculate the area!

Remaining dates for 18/19 & potential dates for 19-20

Dates for 2019/20 are still tentative.


We can also schedule a 60-90 minute personalized session with a group of teachers from your building or district on a variety of topics: Word Problems & Fluency Interventions, Math Language Routines- elementary or secondary, Teaching Math through Writing, Teachers & NWEA, and Math Recovery implementation.

Save me a date?

Here's a link to reserve time for me to come to you! . New dates will continue to be added throughout the year. Once you sign up for a time slot, you will receive confirmation email and request for a little information about your priorities for our time together: individual students, whole/small group instruction, targeted intervention, data & assessment, or "name your own" focus.
