Fun fact about me: I was born and raised in Salem, Massachusetts. For those that don't know, that is the home of the witches! I grew up in an area of town called Witchcraft Heights. Halloween is a BIG deal here and we loveeeee to have some Halloween fun in school.
I thought I would take some time to share a few FREE math games for your young students with a Halloween twist! It is important to note that all these games can be used all year round and with other themes - just switch out the manipulatives!
That being said, I saw a bunch of Halloween manipulatives over at Oriental Trading that would make these games spooky and seasonal and I got SO excited! I used them to make 3 number sense games of varying difficulty for you to use!
Here are the 3 games included:
Stamp the most - this is a simple counting game that has students identifying different ways to make numbers and racing to reach 20 first!
Take them - another fun counting/comparing game that has students taking and putting back manipulatives until they are all gone. Then, students compare how many they each have. Whoever has the most wins!
Place value pumpkins - This game is a little more difficult as students add 2 dice, collect the straws, and then group them into groups of 10 and leftovers. Students continue until all straws are gone and then compare the two numbers and play again!
**For a non-seasonal version, you can play with Dixie cups (I included a sheet with cups instead of pumpkins)**
You can get all the Halloween manipulatives seen above over at Oriental Trading!
