## Monster Math! Sorting Odd and Even Numbers

1-2-3-Come Count and Sort Monsters With Me!

I enjoyed doing a mini-monster theme in early October.  My Y5’s LOVED it.

For a gross motor activity I had them prance around to the Monster Mash.

So I decided to make a Monster Math packet to help study even and odd numbers. “Odd Twad” and "Even Shteven” make it all the more fun!

The numbers go up to 30. Students can also count and sequence the numbers and make an Itty Bitty booklet.

You can play the game “I Have; Who Has?” by  tossing the cards in a basket.  Have each child choose a card and then start with the number 1.

The child holding monster card number one says: “I have monster 1.  Who has monster 2?” Children show their cards and then put them back in the basket.

Play continue til all of the cards have been called.

You can also put these cards up on the wall as a number line. Have some mischievous monster steal one each day. Students can guess which number is missing.

I've also put numbers on a clothesline, clipped with tiny clothespins. Mess up 3-5 numbers each day and have students tell you, using spatial direction words,( behind, beside, between, before, after etc. ) how to fix the line.

I hope you have a monstrously great time with this Monster Math Packet.

Thanks for visiting today.  Feel free to PIN anything you think others may find helpful.

If you've enjoyed the teaching materials and would like to donate even a dollar to help me with the cost of running TWM, I'd be grateful. Thank you!
