Use this Halloween add and subtract around the room activity all Halloween-week long. There are 5 different "sets" with recording sheets. Each recording sheet goes with a "set" and each "set" is labeled by its box color (black, purple, orange, green, and gray). Each recording sheet does have the color listed on the bottom so you know what recording sheet goes with what cards.
Put the cards around the room. Students will add and subtract within 26. Some of the cards do require borrowing, but I made the equation small enough so first graders and maybe some kindergartners could use their fingers and hands.
After they figure out the equations and write their answers on their recording sheet, they will sit back down and figure out the puzzle using the key at the bottom.
Again, there are 5 different sets of cards with 5 different riddles so on Monday, use the green set. On Tuesday, use the orange set. On Wednesday, use the black set, and so on.
An answer key is included.
