2 X 2 = Boo!: A Set of Spooky Multiplication Stories

Project Idea: Write a multiplication story. Choose characters, numbers to multiply, a story problem, and think of a beginning, middle, and end. Draw pictures and think of a title to go with your multiplication story.

2 X 2 = BOO!
A Set of Spooky Multiplication Stories

Witches, ghosts, skeletons, and other Halloween characters help kids learn to multiply in these six short stories that incorporate the multiplication facts from zero to five. Vampires disappear when multiplied by zero, a little witch is doubled, bags of candy rapidly increase in number, and much more spooky math fun.

ART: Acrylic gouache.

“Leedy’s pictures, in comic style, are gory and silly, and kids will work out the numbers as they giggle at the creepy monsters.” Booklist
