Halloween Math Game
The littles have been having fun playing a little Halloween math game I created. It is just like our apple game, but with jack-o-lantern and candy corn stickers and erasers. The addition of two types of stickers and erasers adds another level of complexity to this simple game as they have to count AND match.
To play, two children each get a gameboard. They take turns rolling the die. They choose the correct amount of erasers to match the number they rolled and then place these on the gameboard. The player who covers all their stickers first is the winner. This is an excellent way for them to practice turn-taking, one-to-one correspondence, and counting skills.
