To introduce Sudoku to the young child or first-time puzzle user, begin by showing an answer key card.  Let the child notice things and explain what he or she sees.  Point out only one picture is in a row, column, or sub-grid.


Next, show the 4 sub-grids cut apart and have the child place them on the answer key for practice.


Next, provide the same materials with one sub grid cut apart.  Explain there is only one of each picture in a sub grid area. Remove the larger pieces and allow the child time to experiment with the four small pieces by placing them in each sub grid area.


Finally, show the four pieces on a column, and on a row.  Let the child again have time to place the pieces in each row or column until he or she understands.

Then set up the puzzles one at a time similar to these materials. They may also be placed on a tray, Montessori style.


This printable also has a graphing activity.


A 2015 March Calendar is included for keeping track of the volatile March weather that we call lion/lamb at school. We say if March comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion.  The children enjoy noticing the wild weather.


The second free printable is very similar to the materials above.  The focus is on baby animals instead of March, though. The first PDF has photos and directions, while this one is just the puzzles.
