Number Thief 8X- The Halloween Visit!
(a math story in rhyme! This one encourages students to practice their 8's tables!)

 

It was 7 O’Clock,
No,
It was 8,
No,
It was 9,
And things weren’t great...
It was actually midnight
October thirty-one,
And things were real bad,
Halloween wasn’t fun…
My parents had gone,
To an all-night mall sale,
To buy a thief-trap,
It was shaped like a pail…
halloween plastic pumpkin pail with number thief trap written on it
Yes, my parents had left,
For the big shopping mall,
They’d taken my cousin,
And my great uncle Paul,
They’d taken my rabbit,
My gerbil, and gecko,
dancing gecko cartoon
They’d left me alone,
With only my echo…
I was scared, I was nervous,
I was feeling so sick,
I’d heard footsteps outside,
Clack-clack-clack-click…
Was it the thief?
Coming this late?
I’m sure that it was,
Like 8 x 1 equals,
