Pigs Go to Market: Halloween Fun with Math and Shopping Reviews

    When I read this book I want to die. There's math and pigs and Halloween. Then there's a shopping spree (congratulations, pigs! You're our millionth shopper! Now go be an even bigger pig and grab all you can and shove it in your cart! Ready? Go!). The whole thing is disgusting and completely, well, American.Wonder of wonders, the book ends with the piggies successfully loading all their freebie shit into the car and driving their lardy asses home...but before they can get home (yes, this is what it says, really!)they have this to say: "'Dear, what we need is a little pick-me-up.' said Mr. Pig.'Are you thinking what I'm thinking?'Mrs. Pig broke open the candy while Mr. Pig drove home." And, to close...All You Can Eat (of Ben Folds!)- Listen up, piggies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9qa_c...

    This is a cute little book about some pigs that were going shopping for Halloween supplies. They needed candy and food. I would use this book for grades 1-2 to do a math lesson. If the pigs ate five rows of four gumdrops how many did they eat, is a question that I might ask. This is a great book to use when focusing on word problems. There are even sample problems in the back of the book. For kindergarten I would focus on money and allow them to purchase candy like the pigs did in the book with money.

    Bonus star for math integration: measurement, money, multiplication. The Pigs are all set for Halloween, but they forgot to buy candy (and a whole lot of other stuff, it turns out). We see the prices and weight measures of different types of candies. As Mrs. Pig fills her cart, we try to figure out the total prices depending on how much she buys of each item.Additional resources:http://www.amyaxelrod.com/pigswillbep...

    This book serves as a nice introduction to counting and money. I liked that it's set in a supermarket since that's such a common place and anything Halloween related is always fun. From the pictures, I can ask my students "how much does 2 boxes of 'Witches Brooms' cost?" or "if I started in aisle 1, how many more aisles till I reach the fresh produce section?" I also liked the little 'candies eaten' and 'measurement facts' pages at the end.

    The book has an integration of various math concepts: measurement, money, multiplication. The Pigs are all set for Halloween but the grandparents have eaten up all the candy. We see the prices and weight measures of different types of candies. Students can try to work out the total amount paid by the pigs after their shopping.

    This book becomes exciting when they win a shopping spree. This book introduced many math vocabulary words. This book can be used to teach basic counting skills about time and money. Also, I love this book because it The end of the book it included a lesson where you can use multiplication with the halloween candy.

    A wonderful book to use when implementing a math lesson on measuring and multiplication! The story in engaging and student would enjoy it. It follows "the pigs" and their shopping adventure to buy candy for Halloween. Mrs. Pigs wins a free shopping spree, and we follow her through the market as she picks up items to buy. Great book for students 2-4!

    I thought this book did a good job introducing some math vocabulary. This book could be used with 4-5th grade students to teach basic counting skills, addition and about time. The end of the book has a section where you can extend your lesson into multiplication with the Halloween candy as well as measurement facts about weight.

    This Halloween version of the Pigs adventures is that the mother pig wins a free shopping spree and she goes around the store getting items. The items in the store are set up in arrays. it's a great book for teaching multiplication as arrays to students.

    This book works as a model for how to manage money while shopping. The students have a opportunity to work through money math problems with scaffolded assistance through the story. I recommend this book for 2nd-4th grades.

    I would have kids use magazine cut outs of items teachers selected to make a collage. Afterwards students would see a price chart of the items that the teacher made, and determine how much their total 'shopping spree' would cost.

    I could use this book to introduce counting money, multiplication, and measurements. I think this book would be best for upper elementary grades 3-5.

    I would use this book to to teach my students about price, choice, and comparative shopping. They will examine the information provided on manufacturers' coupons and play a "shopping spree" game.

    This is a good book for usage with a math lesson on money. Kids would enjoy it and learn at the same time. I would recommend it for 2nd and 3rd grade lessons.
