This versatile set of 10 Halloween-themed math word problems is just what you need to add to your Halloween math lessons! Each word problem comes in 4 different versions so that you get exactly what you are looking for.
Version 1: Word problem using numbers and areas for students to show their work, write the matching number sentence, and an answer line.
Version 2: Word problem using words (instead of numbers). This version adds a bit of a challenge, and are good for those kids who tend to just spot the numbers and add or subtract without even looking at the problem. Using this version will break those habits quickly because they will be forced to read the problem. This version also has an area to show their work, write the matching number sentence, and an answer line.
Version 3: This version is the same as version 1, except the two boxes that were used to show work and write a number sentence have been left blank so that you can decide what you would rather them do. Maybe you just use different terminology and you want to make sure you stay consistent. Use this version! Just write in what you would like those boxes to say prior to copying. For example, maybe you use the word "equation" rather than "number sentence". Great! Make those changes on this version to suit your personal style!
Version 4: This version is the same as version 2 only with the two blank boxes for personalization as in version 3.
