This set was definitely a class favorite! The children love to blacken or cross out the monster’s teeth and decorate their faces! This goes along very well with the other monster faces with the different numbers of teeth on pages 9-14. Heidi used these pages by putting them in page protectors, and having the children roll a die to figure out how many teeth to blacken or cross out with dry erase markers. They did this several times to get the idea, passing the different monster pages around from child to child, just for fun! (Heidi used some blank wooden cubes and wrote the numbers zero through five on the faces of them to make the appropriate dice.)
There are also more worksheets that go with each monster face on pages 15-20. The second set of worksheets is a bit trickier! The children must count all of the creatures or objects to figure out which number is the minuend, then count the number of objects that was already crossed out to find the subtrahend. After that, they must find the difference by counting the number of objects that have not been crossed out at all.
