CHAPTER 1

Once long ago, in a humble little hut, lived Mr. Haktak and his wife, Mrs. Haktak. They were old and very poor. What little they ate came from their tiny garden.

In a lucky year when the harvest was plentiful, Mr. Haktak had a little extra to take to the village. There he traded turnips, potatoes, and other vegetables for clothing, lamp oil, and fresh seeds.

One spring morning when Mr. Haktak was digging in his garden, his shovel struck something hard. Puzzled, he dug deeper into the dark ground until he came upon an ancient pot made of brass. "How odd," said Mr. Haktak to himself. "To think that I have been digging here all these years and never camp upon this pot before! I will take it home. Maybe Mrs. Haktak can find some use for it."

Wanted to teach input output tables with 4th graders and this was probably better for a younger age group. But it went with a game that I had made harder- so good for introducing the idea.

I recently saw this book used in a second grade classroom as part of a math lesson on doubling. It was great! The kids were really into the story and at the end wrote their own folktales with number sentences. We had a great time and they learned a lot! I suggest this book to anyone looking to spice up a math lesson! You can use this in all sorts of ways with all sorts of follow up lessons or just as a funny book to kick back and enjoy!
