Learn is way more fun when it has a theme! Here is a great hands-on counting math center activity to go along with your Halloween theme in your classroom.
I prepared this set for my colleague in the preschool. In true monster fashion, they used googly eyes and this set of pumpkin printables. The kids loved it! Some real giggly fun time is making silly monster pumpkins. Great feedback from the kiddos and their parents. It is a lovely way to practice counting - counting eyeballs to put on the monsters! Straightforward and easy to make but engaging and effective!
This set includes colorful and printer friendly versions. Students with all level math skills will enjoy this craftivity.
“Role the dice(s) to see!” pages are great to practice counting 1 – ∞ and learn basic addition and subtraction. It all depends on how many dice the student is using. Students must add the dots on all dice to identify the number and put the correct number of eyeballs on each pumpkin.
If you do not have a dice(s) present, use the pages featuring a number (1-10). Students must identify the number and put the correct number of eyeballs on each pumpkin.
TIPs: Laminate the colorful pumpkin pages for long term use. No need to use glue. When decorated, the white & black version pages are great to display in the classroom (glue-sticks required to paste the eyes, and color pencils/ crayons to decorate the pumpkin monsters)
For a fun way to practice subtraction, start with the monster covered with crazy eyes and use only one dice. Roll the dice and take that many eyes away from the pumpkin. Continue rolling and taking away googly eyes until they are completely gone.
It is interactive! It is fun! It is goals achieving!
