A great aspect of teaching math is that children have the freedom to solve problems using a variety of different strategies. The focus of this instructional activity is for young mathematicians to become aware of many ways of answering addition questions. Learners begin by solving a simple addition equation using paper and pencil, crayons, markers, number lines, manipulatives, or any other materials they may need. Children are then called on to share their solutions as the teacher creates a list of the strategies they used. Consider adding illustrations to the list and posting it in the classroom to support children as they develop their fluency with addition. 
Is there a way to connect creative thinking, logical reasoning, mathematical understanding, and humor? You bet there is! Kids begin by creating creative math quizzes, which require creative thinking to solve. For example, 1+1=24, one equals a dozen so 24 would be the answer. Then they each write a creative story that revolves around a math lesson, which can acutally be taught. The stories are compiled and presented to younger middle schoolers. The activity culminates in a reflective survey and a discussion on the effectivness of creative thinking being used to augment regular math instruction.
