Math Riddles for Kids!

Kindergarten Math Riddles

 

I always loved solving riddles in school!  My mom used to give us a riddle a day at home to keep our brains moving!  I loved it.  My brother is four years older than me.  We had very different riddles, but I still raced him to the finish!

Here are 20 Math Riddles!  The level will change according to their needs, but I put a general Kindergarten age on it to give you an idea.  It is nice, with daily riddles, because you can change the riddles according to what you see is needed.  Calendar Math, keywords, shapes, colors, odd/even and any other concepts can be added in to a riddle for reinforcement.

Creating and posting a ‘Math Key Words’ chart is a good idea for future Math work.  I made sure to write numbers with symbols and with letters.  The goal is to give as much exposure to Math concepts as possible within a daily riddle!
