Happy Easter and new Math games

I've been enjoying my Easter weekend thanks to the upswing in the weather around here. We finally broke into the high 40s and low 50s! That's Vespa weather!

Killer B and I will be visiting her elderly aunt later today for Easter dinner. And then I get tomorrow off due to having collected enough "trade hours!" I spent some time yesterday classing up and compiling three of my fun math games for my TpT store. Check them out!

These are "I have, who has" games for practicing the conversion of customary units of measure. I have a game for length, weight and capacity. I've also put all three into a bundle for $5.

The cards are fun because they play off of the kids' love of anything with a mustache on them. For example, "I have 3ft. I mustache(picture), who has 24 inches given in feet?" 

I've included some of my custom made mustache clip art to print off and use as pencil toppers. I have my kids write the basic conversions on the back of the mustaches and they can peek at them if they need to. I think making the activity fun and memorable with the mustaches helps them remember the conversions.

I've also bundled the games here!

In other TpT news, I was super excited to reach my goal yesterday! Woohoo! 

Check out my Peer Editing Freebie in last Friday's post if you haven't already! And we're on our way to a 50 Follower giveaway! Everyone have a great Easter!


  1. Nick--Happy Easter! A couple of questions---1. What are trade hours? I have never heard of that before.... 2. What was your goal? Congrats on reaching it!

    Love the mustache product!!!

    1. Well, in my district this year they are basically rewarding teachers who pursue their own professional development by counting courses we take as a certain number of hours. When you get to 6 hours you can skip the district's professional development in-service day!

      I had to adjust my goals since this was my first quarter. My first goal was to pay off my subscription, and my second was to make $200. And today a new quarter begins!

    2. Wow....what a cool concept! I wish my district did that. Congrats on reaching your first goal! Yeah for you!!!! I am sure you will reach your next goal of $200. :) Think positive! :)

  2. What a clever resource! Congrats on making your goal! Happy Easter!
