Pirate Themed Number Puzzles

We are all about pirates this week and have a fun X Marks the Spot -  Pirate Themed Number Puzzle FREEBIE for you today. After reading some of our favorite pirate books, it was time to practice writing and counting numbers up to 20. Of course, we had to do this with a pirate theme to make it even more fun. Pirates, treasure, ships, palm trees, parrots and more all made these puzzles more engaging.

To Play

Spread out the puzzle pieces and have students practice assembling the puzzles by matching the word, tally marks and pictures for each number.  There will also be a blank piece in each puzzle.  This is for students to use the dry erase marker and write the corresponding number.

There are puzzles for numbers 1-20.  When you cut those into 4 pieces you are going to end up with 80 triangles which can be overwhelming for younger children. Instead, pull out just the pieces for the numbers you want your students to focus on.  We started with the smaller numbers and then focused on the double digit numbers.

When the puzzles are put together correctly they should form a big X and include the number word, the number made out of tallies, the number made out of pictures and the number written by the student.
