We LOVE to play whole group math games as a part of our math routine in kindergarten. The only thing that can make it better? A Halloween math game!
This Halloween math game is great for practicing comparing quantities and numbers and building number sense. It would be perfect for Preschool, Pre-K, or Kindergarten!
Creepy Comparing Numbers Math Game | How to Play:
This is one of the easiest math games! I drew faces on plastic cups as our “ghosts.” You will also need a dice.
Two students took turns rolling the dice and stacking that many ghosts in a tower. Whoever has the larger number got to knock the towers down!
Let me tell you; if you want to engage your students, just add destruction. Instant engagement!
If two students had the same number, they got to knock their own towers down.
Differentiate: You can use two dice and have students add the numbers together before stacking. First grade teachers, you might even use three dice!
This is a whole group math game that my students kept begging to play over and over again! You could even make this a Halloween math center in October!
Creepy Comparing Recording Sheet
You absolutely don’t have to use a recording sheet during this Kindergarten math game, but you can if you want all students participating at all times.
If your students are ready, you can have them write the numbers rolled on the ghosts. Then, they will circle the ghost with the greater number.
If you are working on just comparing quantities, you can have students draw dots to match the number of ghosts instead.
Do you have a favorite math game to play whole group? I would love to hear about it below! ????????
