Product Description

Use these task cards as part of your Halloween celebration! If your class is like mine, as Halloween nears, we can’t ever get enough of the BIG PUMPKIN, by Erica Silverman. These Big Pumpkin task cards were created as way to integrate math into our love of this delightful story.

Use them in your math center, during small group work, or use them one at a time with your whole class. A Student Recording Sheet is included so students can record their answers for each card, or you might also choose to laminate the cards and have students use an expo marker to solve each card, then simply wipe it off for the next student to use. Teacher Answer Key is provided.

Another option is to simply print out the cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock or construction paper before laminating, to make them extra sturdy. Store them either in a basket or plastic baggie, or hole punch each card and store on a binder ring for easy access. This particular set of task cards is a bit larger which makes the text easy to read, and easier for little hands to hold. For that reason, I store card sets like these in a two-pocket folder along with the Student Recording Sheets.

Included are:

• 24 Task Cards

• Student Recording Sheet

• Teacher Answer Key

Cards address the following skills:

• Count to tell the number of objects

• Count forward to complete number sequence

• Read a Number Line

• Extend a Pattern

• Add sums to 10

• Subtract within 10

• Use ten frame models

Another fun way to use these cards on Halloween is to set up a Scavenger Hunt! My students love scavenger hunts of any kind! Students attach their Recording Sheet to clipboards, and the fun begins! Cards are hidden around the classroom, and students must search the room to find all twenty-four cards to correctly use their math skills to solve the problems. Cards are “hidden” around the room “in plain sight.” All cards are located within a child’s eye view, so it’s not necessary for students to handle the cards. Of course, depending on your class, you might want to hide them in a few more challenging areas! Complete the Scavenger Hunt during a designated time block, or as a “When You’re Finished” Activity. No Color Printer? No Problem! Students have just as much fun completing the Scavenger Hunt if the cards are printed in grayscale. In fact, printing them in grayscale makes them just a bit more difficult to find during the hunt! Saves a lot of ink, too!

Happy Halloween!!
