Product Description
Adding & subtracting are big concepts for our students to get and understand, so what better way to do it than with these cute ghosts in a haunted house. Your students will spin the spinner and cover the ghosts (subtraction) or add more ghosts (addition) then record their equation on the recording sheet.

Whether they are just learning and understanding or practice their skills this activity will make a great center or guided math activity. You can easily differentiate by which spinner you provide, which skill and how many cards they use.

Each card can be used more than once based on what number the spinner lands on (e.g. if using the 0-5 spinner each card can be used 5 times as there are 5 different equations that can be made). When first using/modelling this activity you may prefer to use a whiteboard and pen to practice writing the equation before moving onto the recording sheet. (pack comes in full color or black and white – just print the pages that suit your needs best).

This pack includes:
• Teacher instructions for each game.
• 10 Haunted House Cards – each card has a haunted house with ghosts ranging in numbers from 1-10
• 2 Sets of spinners for addition or subtraction. Spinner 1 has numbers 0-2 and spinner 2 has numbers 0-5. This allows you to differentiate based on where your students are operating at.
• I can cards showing students what they need to do for this activity during center time.
• Ghosts counters for students to add to the card when adding ghosts who are coming to stay.
• Recording sheets for students to show their workings.

Note: there are 29 pages in this pack in total as they number cards, spinners and ghosts also come in black and white saving you ink - just print on colored card stock to make an eye catching math activity.
