As we all know, Halloween can be a very "distracting" time for our students-- however THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE!!!
Why not channel your students' Halloween "excitement" in a meaningful and academic direction!
Using the ABC Point Value Cards I have created, students add the value of each letter in the word to find the word's total point value.
This resource contains numerous possibilities (as well as numerous math skills that include 2.NBT.5, 2.NBT.6, 2.MD.8, & 2.OA.3)) to engage students as Halloween approaches! Included in this resource:
35 three-letter word cards
38 four letter word cards
4 sets of ABC Point Value Cards
*Set One - point values of 1 - 9
*Set Two - double digit point values
*Set Three - money amounts
*Set Four - three digit point values (challenge)
a printable student answer document for assistance with student accountability and differentiation
Teacher friendly answer keys
PLUS THREE ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES IN WORKSHEET FORM for students to complete after finding the point values of Halloween words.
Differentiation is a BREEZE with this resource and allows you to prescriptively choose the skill you want students to practice!
This is an ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE- your students can enjoy the Halloween theme and you don't have to deal with the guilt of "lost time" due to in attention!!! Happy Halloween!
