April Fool's Day Math Freebie

Addition and Subtraction story problemsI was scrambling to find ideas on how to tie some April Fool's Day fun into second grade math.  Today I had some children writing their own addition and subtraction stories, and they were having some fun with their stories.  You might just say, they inspired me!  I thought I'd share some silliness of my own, including some math stories!  These have addition, subtraction, and a couple of multiplication stories.

And by the way... your shoe is untied!

Update:  I had my students write their own "April Fools" math problem stories on Friday. Their favorite topics:  diapers, toilets, and dancing hamsters.  We came rather close to that "not appropriate for school" type stuff, but they had some giggles and did a great job remembering when to use addition, and when to use subtraction!

Ah, the humor of a second grader.  I really do love my job!  :)


  1. How fun. Thanks for the cute freebie!
