Room on the Broom Board Game

Who doesn't love Julia Donaldson's wonderful Halloween tale Room on the Broom? The story of a friendly witch who along with her cat, befriends a dog, a bird and a frog? 

In preparation for the upcoming Halloween period, I created this fun and colourful board game to be used when reading Room on the Broom. Help the witch get to her cauldron!

Students will love seeing the characters from the story realised in a visual, hands-on way!

There are two options you can choose to use, (or why not use both for an extra challenge?!) Addition and Subtraction or Nouns / Verbs / Adjectives.

The Addition and Subtraction set includes 48 cards and an answer sheet. Each card is numbered for easy reference to the answer sheet. The Nouns / Verbs / Adjectives set includes 36 cards and an answer sheet. Each card is numbered for easy reference to the answer sheet. There are 12 noun cards, 12 verb cards and 12 adjective cards. I have also included a sheet of card fronts. Simply print, cut, join a card front with a question card and laminate!

Also included are different dice options. A normal die and a themed die. The themed die comes with a number key.

A handy instruction page completes the set.

I used colourful buttons as playing pieces, but counters or blocks would also work great!

This can be purchased in my store as a stand alone product or as part of my hugely discounted Room on the Broom Literary and Math Companion!

Each companion is also sold separately, the literary companion includes the Noun / Verb / Adjective cards and the Math Companion includes the Addition and Subtraction cards. For more details on these items, please follow the links below!

For more Halloween products, check out the Halloween section of my store!

I will be going into further detail about my Room on the Broom Literary and Math companion over the next couple of weeks. I guarantee it will engage your students and is all you need for a themed unit on this wonderful book (you will need to purchase the book separately!)

If you are planning on doing a themed unit for Room on the Broom, there is an excellent video to accompany the tale that can be purchased on Amazon. It really brings the characters to life! It can be purchased on Amazon here:

I hope you enjoy teaching Room on the Broom as much as I do!
