Product Description
In this pack you will get a total of 6 October/Halloween-themed math center games focused on the early kindergarten skills of number recognition, number formation, counting, and comparing sets. Simply print the number of copies you will need for your math center groups, laminate for durability, and add any needed manipulatives such as dice, play dough, cubes, counters, or dry erase markers.

Spider Roll and Cover
*What you’ll need: Laminated game boards (enough for each student in your small group), dice, laminated spider counters (or you can provide seasonal spider manipulatives!)
*How to Play: Each student will get a Roll and Cover game board, game die, and 12 spider counters. Students roll the game die, count the dots, find that number on their game board, and cover it. Students keep rolling the die until all numbers are covered.
*Differentiation: Students who are ready for a challenge can be given the Roll and Cover 2-12 game board and two game die. Have them roll both dice, count the total, and cover the matching number.

Roll and Trace
*What you’ll need: Laminated game boards (enough for each student in your small group), dice, dry erase or vis-à-vis markers.
*How to Play: Each student will get a Roll and Trace 1-6 game board, game die, and dry erase or vis-à-vis marker. Students roll the game die, count the dots, find that number on their game board, and trace it. Students keep rolling the die until all numbers are traced.
*Differentiation: Students who are ready for a challenge can be given the Roll and Trace 2-12 game board and two game die. Have them roll both die, count the total, and cover the matching number.

Spooky Count the Room
*What you’ll need: Laminated counting picture cards hung up around your classroom, recording sheet, pencils, clipboards
*How to Play: Each student will get a recording sheet on a clipboard. They will search the room for each of the pictures on their recording sheet. Once the card with the matching pictures is found, they should count the pictures on the card and record the number next to that picture on their sheet.

Pumpkin Seed Ten Frames
*What you’ll need: Laminated pumpkins and ten frames cut apart for matching, recording sheet, crayons or markers
*How to Play: Each student will get a recording sheet. They will start by matching a number pumpkin to its corresponding ten frame. After creating the match, they will find the number pumpkin on their recording sheet and fill in the ten frame to match with dots using crayons or markers. They will continue until all matches are found.

Pumpkin Numbers Big and Small
*What you’ll need: Laminated ten frame number cards cut apart and placed upside down on the table; recording sheet, pencils
*How to Play: Each student will choose 2 number cards and flip them over to read the numbers. They will compare the 2 cards to determine which is bigger and which is smaller. They will then write the bigger number on the bigger pumpkin on their recording sheet and write the smaller number on the smaller pumpkin.

Spider Web Play Dough Mats
*What you’ll need: Laminated mats and play dough
*How to Play: Students will select a spider web play dough mat. They will use the play dough to create “spiders” to place in the web, make the number and match it to the number outline, and make counters to represent the number in the ten frame.
