## Number Puzzles for the Win!

Teaching children to read and write numbers in various forms, such as word form, digit form, and expanded form, provides children with a comprehensive understanding of numbers. It goes beyond simply recongising digits; it empowers them to grasp that numbers can be expressed in different ways, from the spoken words we use in everyday language to the symbolic digits that underpin mathematical operations.

This set of individual puzzles has been created and designed by a teacher to enable a different way for students to practise their knowledge of place value and numbers to 6 digits!

## How to Use These Number Puzzles in the Classroom

This set of number puzzles ranges from matching 2-digit numbers to 6-digit numbers. Deciding on what your students are capable of is the first step, and then you can set them up for success by only providing the pieces that suit their level.

For those students who are ready – give them all the pieces and try to give them a time limit for matching all the puzzle pieces together.
