Product Description
This product gives directions on how to create "jack-o-lantern and ghost lima bean" counters. It also includes 3 recording sheets - the first for counting, the second for addition and the last for subtraction. Also included is a title card that can be used to label your center. I like to put my Math Centers in "sandwich sized" plastic containers. They stack very nicely on my bookshelves and the smaller title label can be taped to the side so I can easily find the center I am looking for.

Halloween Spill the Beans Counting activity - Child "spills the beans"( I keep the beans in a pharmacy pill bottle), sorts the beans into groups of jack-o-lanterns and ghosts, counts and records the numbers on the recording sheet. The child continues to "spill the beans" until the sheet is full.

Halloween Spill the Beans Addition activity - Child "spills the beans", sorts the beans into groups of jack-o-lanterns and ghosts, writes an addition sentence, and finds the sum. The child continues to "spill the beans" until the sheet is full.

Halloween Spill the Beans Subtraction activity - Child "spills the beans", counts ALL the beans, then sorts the beans into groups of jack-o-lanterns and ghosts, writes a subtraction sentence subtracting the ghosts from the total number of beans, and counts the jack-o-lanterns to find the difference. The child continues to "spill the beans" until the sheet is full.

NOTE: The total number of beans in the bottle DOES NOT change. It is up to you as to how many beans are in the bottle. I sometimes put several pill bottles out - each with a different number of beans. The child should only choose 1 bottle to complete the recording sheet.

This is a great Math Center activity. The kids love it! Enjoy!
