Stories With A Maths Theme?


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My mind has gone totally blank!!!

 

We are having a whole school Maths day next week and am trying to think of a story that I could get lots of Maths activities out of. I have unfortunately already looked at the usual suspects during our traditional tales topics so am looking for a completely different story with lots of opportunities for Maths.

 

I am in Nursery and my children seem to respond so much better to activities when they have been introduced through a story hence why I am asking.

 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately not - maths team seem to be ahead of the game!

 

Lets be proactive then and start our own as it seems a really good idea for the resources. We start a thread 'Stories with a *** theme' allow members to make suggestions and then a member puts it in the grid format with ISBN numbers :o . What shall we start with???
