After quite a long hiatus, Monday Must Reads is back! This is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas shared by (mostly) math teachers on twitter. I hope you find an idea or two worth adapting for your own classroom!

I love this idea from Maite Alejandre. She has printed and laminated a bunch of picture equation puzzles from the internet to use with early finishers or as an introduction to systems of equations.

Here’s a translation of the tweet courtesy of Google Translate: “I always carry these cards in my backpack. I use them on shifts, in class if they have finished work, and as introductory material for equations. I leave you the link to download it if you consider that it can be useful”

I have used tents and trees puzzles with my students before, but Shauna Burnie blew my mind when she showed an example of solving these puzzles with manipulatives!
