Pick a Pumpkin is a kindergarten and first grade game that will give your students lots of practice counting up and counting back to add and subtract. Examples are included for sums and differences of zero through fifteen.

To play Pick a Pumpkin , your students will read a card and follow the directions to move up or move back on their own number line. Then they'll use a wipe-off marker to make an X on the number they land on. { Sample clue card: “Start on 11. Go back 7. Pick a Pumpkin!” } The first player to have 5 Xs in a row wins!

Here's what's included in this set:

⭐ 135 themed clue cards for addition and subtraction

⭐ Pumpkin-themed number lines at two levels of support - makes differentiation easy!

Large number cards to build a walk-on (or jump-on!) number line to solve the clues. They're a great way to add more movement and improve learning!

⭐ A cut-and-glue practice/assessment page with answer key

⭐ An easy-prep one-page board game that uses the same cards

Game assembly is simple: print on cardstock, cut apart, and laminate for durability. There's even a label for your storage container!

Ideal for your math centers or math tubs. Try this activity with a small group to do some up-close monitoring of your students' ability to start on the correct number, count "hops" accurately, and match hops/counts one-to-one.
