This resource is a FREE book companion for Anna Llenas! It's a great activity to start a conversation about how we feel about math and how we can work to make us feel better about math too!


Learning Goal: To reflect on how we feel about math and practice journal writing.


Success Criteria:

  • I identified an emotion that I feel when I work on math problems.
  • I explained why I feel this way when I work on math problems and thought about what I can do to help me feel better, if necessary.
  • I coloured my monster to match the emotion(s) I chose.
  • I checked over my work to make sure my spelling is correct and that I have answered the question.


This deck includes:

  • Instructions for the educator, blank versions to add to bulletin board and 3 worksheet versions for students to complete.
  • Aligned with the 2020 Ontario Math Curriculum
  • Fonts from PB and KG Fonts on TPT. Clip Art from Rainbow Sprinkle Studio.
