Learning Objective

The students will solve math story problems with addition and subtraction, numbers less than 20, with Halloween themes.


Math story problems can be challenging, but with a Halloween theme, they're a little more fun!

Why use Halloween Math Story Problems? Research tells us children are more likely to become engaged in a learning activity if the topic is something that interests them. The Halloween theme makes math story problems more fun!

How it works: Children can work on these fun math story problems as “bell work”, during math centers, or anytime! These activities are great for the Sub Tub, since they don't depend on a previous lesson, yet will give the children opportunities to build and strengthen their skills.

What’s included: This resource has 6 math story problems designed for primary grades mathematics. Each problem has numbers less than 20, and require addition or subtraction to solve. Each story problem has a Halloween theme and a fun picture.

Be sure to download the preview file for each individual resource for a better view of what’s in this bundle. Thanks!

These addition and subtraction problems are part of: Halloween No Prep Worksheets and Printables
