This pumpkin themed number recognition center is a great Halloween or fall/autumn themed center for students who are practicing number or number word recognition. This game is for small group instruction or can be used as a whole class game.
Designed for the pocket chart, Where's the Cat? is a game for centers or whole group instruction where a black cat is hidden behind a pumpkin. A poem is chanted where the student(s) must say the number they think the cat is behind. Once guessed, the number is removed. If the cat is behind the pumpkin, then the cat must be hidden again to play further. If the cat is not behind the pumpkin, then the poem is chanted again and a new number is guessed. This game has numbers 1-100 as well as number words up to 20.
