Are you looking for a fun way to practice adding and subtracting with your Kindergarteners or first graders this Halloween season? This math center is designed as a clip card activity, meaning students can use clothespins to clip the correct answer after solving. In order to help support young mathematicians, I have included Halloween manipulatives, ten frames, number lines, and part-part-whole mats, as well as recording sheets.

Cards can be easily differentiated by text color, or you can allow students to choose from all of the cards once each skill has been introduced.

Blue- Addition to 10

Purple- Addition to 20

Green- Subtraction from 10

Orange- Subtraction from 20

Simply print, laminate, and cut out cards (4 per page). You can draw a star or dot on the back of the card to mark the correct answer if you choose to make it self correcting. You can print as many copies as needed of the Halloween manipulatives and work mats. These tools work well as you introduce a strategy for solving a problem in small groups and also during center time.

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
