Classroom Riddles

Back in the day, I would incorporate fun riddles into our daily routine. My students loved it! Every morning when my students walked in, I would have a riddle written out on chart paper. As they put their things away, I would read the riddle. Independently, students would grab a scrap piece of paper from a bin of recycled papers. They would draw (and eventually write) their guess to the riddle. Then, they would place their folded up guess in a baggie attached to my chart caddy. After our morning announcements and pledge, I would read the riddle again and tally the guesses. We would dig into the text and make sure our guesses made sense. As time went on, my students got pretty good at paying attention to the clues and making accurate guesses.

As I said, I just wrote the riddle on chart paper every morning. That takes time and sometimes, we don’t have that kind of time! Like, EVER!  So, I created a product with easy to print riddles for you to incorporate into your classroom. You can even display the riddles using a projector, without even printing them!
