One Witch Math Problems

I accidentally came across this Halloween book. A boy in my class had taken it out of the school library, and I took a peek before he returned it. I blogged this week how I did a Bridge Map using rhyming words from this story. Today we returned to the story One Witch to solve some Halloween math problems. We have been doing story problems a lot this year. I am also trying to incorporate number lines into our math work.  It was much easier for students to illustrate and answer a problem then create one themselves.

 I had partners work together to represent the problem and solve it together. They came out great. I did have some groups work on the same problem as others too.

  4. The number line is a wonderful idea, can't believe that I never added it to my journal prompts. Thanks so much!!

  5. Great idea to include the number line. It appears to help many of them stretch their thinking. I look forward to your posts - and I'm a first grade teacher.
