Magic Squares

Hey everyone! I am so excited to be guest blogging for you today. I am Heather from HoJo’s Teaching Adventures. HoJo is simply a family nickname that stuck when I was very young.

My goal today is to get you excited about Magic Squares! What are they? Well, basically they are a fun, educational puzzle that will have your students begging for more! These have been used successfully in grades K-6! Your students will LOVE them once they get the hang of them, and you will LOVE that your students are learning through play!

Here’s what a K-2 Magic Square looks like –

Your job is to cut apart the nine squares and give them to the student. The student will then put them into the correct order! Simple!

You can get the above Magic Square and another of +12 by clicking on the picture above or below!

Want to try another one to see what you think? Then click on the picture below!

Now – I know what you’re thinking…. “Sheesh, these are the items she offers for free in her TpT store daily. I could have these anytime!”

You’re right! That’s why I’m offering an exclusive freebie just to the readers of this blog! Click on the picture below to get your limited time Number Dice Magic Square. Your students will match the number words to the amount of dice shown. However, act quickly, because this offer is only good for one week from the date of this post. Then – it’ll be gone! So….GO!

Two more quick things before I let you go!

First, you can find all of my Magic Squares here.

Second, I’d love for you to leave a comment below (or on my blog) on what type of Magic Square you would like me to create next. Whenever someone gives me an idea that I use and leaves me an e-mail address, I send them that file for FREE when I get it done! So get your creative juices flowing and help me out! =)

Thanks for reading!

  1. KinderPond – I do have colors located here — http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Color-Words-Magic-Square I love the idea of shapes and money. Please send me an e-mail at hojostptstore@yahoo.com with these ideas. When I get them done, I'll send them to you for FREE for getting them to me! 🙂

    Kylie – I love the idea of synonyms, antonyms, and homophones! I hope I can get these done yet this summer, but I will be working on them whenever I get the chance!

    Michelle – I have not made any for sight words. What would the students do – match word to word?

    Thank you for the comments! =)

  2. Sheila –

    Can you further explain how this would work with beginning sounds, ending sounds, and CVC words. Would you want students to match up words with similar beginning sounds? What would they match up with the CVC words? These are great ideas, but I want to make sure I fully understand how you'd like to see them implemented.

    Thanks!
