Trick or Treat Blog Hop!

Ghouls and goblins and ghosts, oh my! Trick or treat! This is Lesley Boatright, AKA Practice Makes Perfect playing a little Halloween trick on you by posting on Teach with Laughter's blog. I'm so tricky like that.


Several bloggers at {The Teaching Tribune} have joined together for this Trick or Treat Blog Hop. You will find more tricks as well as plenty of treats as you hop from door to door.

I have an awesome treat for you today!  It's called number brew, and my kids  have had so much fun using it in the class.  Everyday they ask me, "Are we going to play number brew today?"


I made the first set for to use in class and so you can see how the game works, but this is a totally versatile activity that you can use over and over.  Need to practice subtraction?  No problem.  Program the worksheet for differences that equal a certain number, or, as I did, differences  greater than a certain number or less than a certain number. 


 Practicing multiplication, division, even/odd numbers, addition to 20, whatever!  You decide which skill you want to focus on on a particular day, program the worksheet for the "rule," make the matching cards, get out your Halloween container, and you have an instant, fun math practice game ready to go.



You can get this exclusive blog hop freebie by clicking on the color picture of the cover up above.  So there you have it, my treat for you!  I hope the treat was worth the trick!

Are you ready to head next door and see what tricks and treats the next two bloggy buddies are up to? Just "knock" on the door below and enter -- if you dare!

Happy Halloween everyone!!!!

  3. Thanks for this. I love it and have the perfect rule for it. We are looking at greater than less than and when the math statements are true. I am going to use it for this. The true ones will go in the cauldron. Awesome activity :)

  4. I love this activity. We are working on function machines this unit so it will be perfect. Just wondering if the bottom of the cauldron should say "rule" or "role".

    2. Hi! So glad you love the activity. It should be "rule," as in what rule does this problem follow. In my sample, the rule is differences that are > 5. In order to get in the pot, the number sentence has to follow the rule.

      Thanks for helping me to clarify that!

    3. Okay, I see what you're talking about, on the black and white version. Thanks so much for pointing it out.

    4. Thank you! That's what I thought. My copy says "role" at the bottom of the cauldron so I wanted to be sure before I used it in class.

  5. Just what I needed. Thanks for the treat!
