See what customers are saying about my lessons.

Being a special ed. and interventionist teacher, I was a little nervous that this would be above my 5th & 6th graders’ heads, but I was SO wrong! My students LOVED these! I got to see a new side to their thinking and these really got some good conversations started (students were working in pairs). These are a must buy for teachers looking to challenge their students!

I’ve used this resource a few times now and I’ve really collected a lot of samples for kids to get excited about. One of my students just asked me when we were going to make our Dream Bedroom that he heard about from prior students!!! Some groups can take the packet and have everything done by the due date. Others can only handle one page at a time, but everyone loves it! (Design a Dream Bedroom)

If you really want your students to understand and internalize the difference between area and perimeter, you NEED these in conjunction with your lesson. Promotes higher level thinking and discourse. LOVE!!! (Reasoning Puzzles: Area)

My students absolutely LOVED this project! They could not wait to plan their own sleepover- some might’ve actually gone through with it too! It was really neat to see students connect math to their own life and truly enjoy it. Thank you! (Sleepover Madness: Performance Task)

Oh. My. Goodness. This is FABULOUS! My students are eating it up and SO ENGAGED!!!!! They keep wanting to add things to their yard… like fire pits, swing sets, etc. I’m going to create another set of criteria for their extensions! 🙂 THANK YOU! 🙂 (Doggy Dilemma: Open Ended Problem)

Hands down, one of the best resources for teaching multiplication in a developmentally appropriate way. I used this resource for a reteach and students understood so much better after going through these steps. (The Cupcake Shop: Multiplication Project)

I love these reasoning puzzles! This is the second file of its kind that I have purchased from Beyond Traditional Math, and have loved them both (the other version I purchased was for fractions). These really get kids to think and REASON about the things that they have learned. I use them after we’ve thoroughly taught a concept to get kids to build upon their knowledge base. Thanks for another great resource! (Reasoning Puzzles: Area)

I am obsessed with this product. I only wish every activity I did had reasoning behind it! My students really struggle with understanding the meaning behind the numbers and this really helped them understand. Thank you! (Reasoning Puzzles: Area)
